PAUL: The coup that isn't as Obama disregards his duty to cut off Egyptian aid

Egypt has undergone a coup, deposed its leader and the military has installed a new president. The situation is unpredictable, unstable and volatile. The country remains in a state of unrest.

What do we do? We send them F-16s.

U.S. law states that we can’t send military and other types of aid to any country whose duly elected head of state is deposed by a coup. U.S. law clearly says that we cannot send such aid where the military plays a decisive role in the coup.

This law allows no presidential waiver. Aid cannot be reconsidered or restored until a democratically elected government is elected.

Yet, as President Obama has so often done with other laws and even the Constitution, he ignores it.
