Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi pled with opposition leaders in Egypt to help him deal with a new wave of unrest around the country. Meanwhile, a state of emergency has been declared in areas along the Suez Canal. David Kirkpatrick is a reporter for our partner The New York Times.

We are told of Morsi "pleading with opposition leaders" but no mention of Morsi's reprehensible anti-semtic comments. Remember when we are told that the Muslim Brotherhood were moderates?
No mention that the Obama administration will add to our 16 trillion dollar debt by sending weapons to the Egyptian government but deep reporting about US citizens at a gun show in the wake of restrictions.

So an "angry Republican" is carefully quoted at a gun show by not the Morsi who will be getting fighter planes and tanks from the Obama administration?

"Wow" indeed.
