President Obama Speaks On Violence In Egypt [VIDEO]
Thursday morning, a day after over 600 Egyptians were killed in a crackdown on protests, President Obama issued a statement on the violence in Egypt from Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports from Washington:
(President Obama) “The United States strongly condemns the steps that have been taken by Egypt’s interim government and security forces.”
And action from President Obama. Speaking from his vacation home on Martha’s Vineyard, the President says the U.S. is cancelling a joint-military operation with Egypt scheduled for next month.
(President Obama) “While we want to sustain our relationship with Egypt our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets.”
President Obama stopped short of describing the ouster of democratically elected leader Mohammed Morsi a coup and did not threaten to strip more than a billion dollars in annual aid to the Egyptian military.

After a violent clashes against pro-Morsi demonstrators, the political chaos continues in Egypt.
FOX News Radio’s Kimberly Adams reports from Cairo, Egypt:
Supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi attacked government buildings in Giza today [Thursday], setting it on fire. They’re taking vengeance on the government as others begin to bury some of the people killed in yesterday’s [Wednesday’s] crackdown. Dozens of churches and church buildings have also been torched by Morsi supporters.
Meanwhile, some political groups here in Cairo that backed the military overthrow of Morsi’s government are now condemning the Army, saying it used too much violence against demonstrators.
