What Obama didn't say about Egypt on Friday

Here's President Obama's statement on Friday regarding Egypt's regime change. Can you guess what's missing?

Let's go to the videotape.

So what's missing?

#1. When Angela Merkel of Germany prepared a short two paragraph comment on developments in Egypt she saw fit to include in it "We also expect future Egyptian governments to pursue peace in the Middle East so that the contracts were signed with Israel, are respected and that Israel's security is guaranteed."

#2. When U.S. President Obama prepared a 17 paragraph long address on developments in Egypt he declined to make any reference to peace and Israel.

#3. This failure to mention peace in these remarks was consistent with Mr. Obama's previous public remarks relating to Egypt prior to the resignation.

#4. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, in his last press conference before leaving the post, also only finally go around to mentioning peace in response to reporters.

The very unfortunate message from Mr. Obama to the Egyptians in particular and the Arab world in general is that as far as he is concerned, Egypt honoring peace with Israel is at best of tertiary importance in his eyes.
Read the whole thing.
