Commander confusion

To the Editor:

Why is President Obama sequestering our military – which may result in thousands of troops cut from the Army – while giving Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood $250 million in new taxpayer aid?

He is shipping 20 state-of-the-art F16 fighter jets and 200 M-1 Abrams battle tanks to Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has implemented Sharia law, persecutes Christians and is hostile to Israel. So why are we aiding them and cutting our own military budget?

And tell me: President Obama is commander in chief of whose armed forces? I’m confused!
