Is Egypt’s blood on America’s hands?
Barack Obama and John Kerry are not responsible for the massacre of hundreds of civilian protesters by the Egyptian military – at least not directly. But their hands are stained with Cairo’s blood, all the same. I’m sure the crafters and shapers of American foreign policy are genuinely horrified by the scale of carnage in Egypt’s streets, and by the looming threat of civil war between Islamic fundamentalists and secular forces. But it happened on their watch, and they’ve got to own it.
