Government promised a review of foreign aid, not action 

Remember when the Obama administration said that it would review its foreign aid to Egypt? Well it turns out they meant exactly that, a review but no action coming from that review.

Yesterday Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on 'This Week' with Christiane Amanpour said that “there is no discussion, as of this time, of cutting off aid.” So I guess the question is, does this mean that the Obama administration has conducted a review and decided that they’re still OK giving money to a government that has shown grievous human rights violations?
