A "working group on Egypt" that includes prominent conservatives and liberals urged the Obama administration to cut assistance to Egypt if violence continues. "Until unrestrained thug violence began on February 1, the Working Group was hopeful that the Egyptian military would play a positive role in safeguarding a peaceful transition," said the statement Thursday, which was first reported by Politico. "If the government continues to employ such violence, the United States should immediately freeze all military assistance to Egypt."
