Diligent’s CEO Mike Barrett discusses how cutting Military aid can be counter-productive because the Egyptian military is relatively moderate and modern and acts as a bulwark towards the more erratic civilian Muslim Brotherhood government. It is also a form of relatively affordable “insurance” and risk management in terms of keeping Egypt aligned to the Israeli Peace Treaty and the Camp David Accord.  A link to the video on YouTube is available here: Keeping Aid to Egyptian Military is Good Strategy.
