Describing what would be a rebuke of the Egypt's crackdown on Islamist opponents and the military ouster of its president, a Senate aide said the United States has halted military aid to Egypt. However; Obama administration officials immediately rejected the claim. Strategist Anthony Cordesman says cutting off U.S. aid to Egypt won't make a difference. Egypt is undergoing a power struggle that will take years to play out. The White House denied a news report that it has secretly frozen aid to Egypt?s military, effectively treating the ouster of democratically elected President Mohammed Morsi as a coup despite publicly refusing to say so. less
