Death Sentences in Egypt -- It is beyond time for the U.S. to speak up and take action.

How can President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry not be more vocal on this issue concerning the rule of law? Where are the media opinion articles on this?

  • BBC -- Egypt: Brotherhood’s Badie among mass death sentences.

    "A judge at a mass trial in Egypt has recommended the death penalty for 683 people - including Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie.

    The defendants faced charges over an attack on a police station in Minya in 2013 in which a policeman was killed."

  • INYT -- Egypt sentences hundreds to death.

    "An Egyptian court here on Monday sentenced to death the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and more than 680 other people after a swift mass trial on charges of inciting or committing acts of violence that led to the destruction of a police station and the killing of an officer."
