EXPOSED: US weapons sales to Egypt 2010 – 2013 (VOR Infographic)

By Sean Nevins

WASHINGTON (VOR) - The Obama Administration is currently deciding whether or not to continue foreign military aid to Egypt in response to the 3 July coup d'état and the subsequent crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood members. 

It has postponed the delivery of four F-16 fighter jets from Lockheed Martin, and the president’s top national security aides have recommended that hundreds of millions of dollars in assistance be stopped.

The Voice of Russia’s Sean Nevins recently reviewed 916 defense-related contracts between the US and Egypt to assess how much money is being spent, which firms are making the most, and what is being sold. The results – culled from USAspending.gov, the Department of Defense, and the Defense Security Cooperation Agency – are below, along with an audio discussion between VOR host Crystal Park and Sean Nevins.
