Egyptian Opposition Refuses To Meet With State Department Officials

Not happy about the U.S. sending funds to Israel and the Muslim Brotherhood


State Department officials can't get a meeting with leaders of the Egyptian opposition amid continuing fallout over President Obama's perceived support for the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Tamarud movement, which launched the campaign to oust President Mohamed Morsi, said Monday it would not participate in a roundtable discussion with the State Department's second-ranking official and U.S. Ambassador Anne Patterson.
