Egypt: The Blood on the New York Times’ Editors’ Hands

When the Egyptian military was promising even more violence against demonstrators protesting the coup d’tat that overthrow President Morsi after two previous massacres, and despite a U.S. law prohibiting foreign aid to any government taking power through a coup, the New York Times editors insisted that “American military aid to Egypt should not be cut off”.

After the generals followed through on their threat to silence the “terrorists” with a claimed “mandate” to do so from supporters of the coup, massacring another reported 1,000 civilians or so, the Times editors finally called on Obama to oppose the generals’ “conduct” by “immediately suspending military aid”.

A welcome reversal. A bit late too late to wash the blood off their hands, though.
