Mr Gibbs said: “The government has not taken the necessary steps that the people of Egypt need to see. That’s why more and more people come out to register their grievances.”If there’s some notion on the government side that you can put the genie back in this bottle, I think that’s gone a long time ago.”
He added that the US was reviewing its aid programme to Egypt, and the government’s restraint and reform would determine “what that aid will look like”.
It is about time for our government leaders to take this seriously and stand up for the principles of our nation. There has been enough.
