(CNN) – President Barack Obama spoke out against violence in Egypt Thursday, saying the United States "deplored" violence against civilians.
The speech was a call for calm on both sides.
A senior White House official told CNN's Jake Tapper that Obama was briefed on the situation in Egypt by National Security Adviser Susan Rice Wednesday.
I'm going with–BECAUSE IT'S HIS JOB!
Sometimes I wonder exactly which site I'm posting on.... Really.
Let me answer your question for you.....
Because he is the President of the United States. Period.
Sigh, more conservative bait.
There's not a story within a continent of this upload, CNN. Grow up.
So the violence in Egypt has been going on for several weeks now and NOW the president decides to make a public statement? Is this part of his "Lead from Behind" strategy?
