Jerry920 sends a link to Fox News which recounts the story of the US buying twenty F1-6 jets for the Muslim Brotherhood…er…Egypt which will be delivered in the new year;
The U.S. government ordered and paid for the fighter jets for Egypt’s military as part of foreign aid for Egypt back in 2010, when Hosni Mubarak ruled. The fighter jets were supposed to be delivered in 2013, and delivery will go ahead as scheduled even though Hosni Mubarak has been removed from power and replaced by Mohamed Morsi, who led the Muslim Brotherhood before becoming Egypt’s president.
Well, that makes perfect sense to me. Riots in the streets, Hamas getting their resupplies from Iran through Egypt and now we’re going to give them 20 jets. At a cost of about a billion bucks. Maybe we can give marksmanship training to the Taliban, too.
