More criticism coming our way in the foreign press
There’s more criticism in the foreign press this morning, this time coming from the LA Times, which follows the Guardian earlier this week in pointing out the differences in Biden’s campaign rhetoric on human rights and his administration’s relationship with the Egyptian government. This came on the same day that the state-owned Ahram Online published a rebuttal to a piece run in the Financial Times this week about the military’s role in the economy.
