Krauthammer’s Take: Obama Administration ‘Got It Exactly Right’ in Postponing Egypt Response

by NRO Staff

“I don’t think I’ve ever said this, but I think Carney actually got it exactly right today,” Charles Krauthammer remarked on Special Report Monday evening when asked about the Obama administration’s decision to postpone an official response to the ousting of Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi by the Egyptian army last week.

Krauthammer explained that the U.S. is “not in a position to decide” which side to take in the upheaval and agreed that the White House should “wait and see” how the situation develops.

He also criticized Senator John McCain’s call to suspend aid, stating that “what we need to do is suspend judgment” as conditions in the country change hourly. Premature action “would only hurt our cause and the cause of the democrats” in Egypt, Krauthammer concluded.
