Obama Regime Will Diminish US Influence on Egypt

The massive Saudi aid to Egypt encouraged Gen. el-Sisi to stage his coup and already marginalized US influence on the country.  The decision by the Obama regime to cut aid to Egypt will further reduce the US to irrelevance.  At a time when Egypt is preparing to draft a new constitution for the country, this move will increase Saudi influence and make it more likely that the new Egyptian constitution will resemble that of the radical Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia.  The only good thing about this situation is that at least the expanding Saudi influence in that country will exclude the Muslim Brotherhood and the Iranians from power.
