Cairo – Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi made quick work of incoming U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry on Sunday, prodding the Democrat to give Egypt $250 million in immediate “economic assistance.”Sunday’s meeting served as a precipice for similar giveaways to come, even as Kerry insisted Egypt would need to make some economic and political reforms before he releases the next batch of U.S. funding to the Islamic government. Mr. Obama’s administration gave Egypt $450 million in emergency aid in 2012 and the country averages about two billion in U.S. foreign aid money each year.
