Egypt coup raises questions on U.S. military aid

By Tom Cohen

A foreign policy headache for President Barack Obama worsened on Wednesday as Egypt endured its second coup in less than three years.

The declaration by Egypt's powerful military that suspended the constitution and removed President Mohamed Morsy from power raised questions about U.S. military aid to an important Middle East ally that borders Israel.

In addition, the coup ousted Egypt's first democratically elected leader a year after he took office, creating a further uncomfortable policy scenario for a U.S. government and president that champion democratic principles.

Top national security officials including Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, and CIA Director John Brennan headed to the White House after the coup announcement Wednesday.

In Egypt, the U.S. Embassy ordered the evacuation of non-essential personnel, a senior administration official told CNN.
