Obama Cancels Exercises With Egyptian Military As Result Of Crisis

President Obama took time from his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard to cancel the U.S. military’s participation in next month’s a biennial training exercise with the Egyptian military dubbed Operation Bright Star

“While we want to sustain our relationship with Egypt, our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back,” Obama said in an audio statement from Martha’s Vineyard, where he is vacationing. “As a result, this morning we notified the Egyptian government that we are canceling our biannual joint military exercise, which was scheduled for next month.”
