July 13, 2013 

E gypt is once again in political turmoil. More extreme Islamist forces appear to gaining control. There will be more bloodshed before any semblance of order returns to the nation’s governing forces. The question for America is whether to call this latest action a coup, thus suspending aid as required by law. Foreign policy experts are arguing both sides, seeking the answer that leads to the greatest regional stability.
