    State Department corrects Obama, says Egypt is an ally

    The State Department, cutting through the confusion over President Obama's claim that Egypt is not a U.S. ally, contradicted his characterization Thursday.

    For the record, spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said, Egypt is considered a major non-NATO ally.

    The comment came as White House aides also carefully clarified the president's remarks.

    The president made the initial statement in an interview with the Spanish-language Telemundo. "I don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we do not consider them an enemy," Obama said, reacting to the ongoing and intense demonstrations outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.

    The man causes me grief as a citizen.

    He loves himself, and he thinks he is invincible.

    I pray we vote him out.

    If Obama would drop this fake war on women and pay attention to something real like a legitimate foreign policy he might get something done. Instead in the middle of this crisis he goes campaigning in Las Vegas. This goes to show where his personal priorities are.

    Carter Corrects Obama: 'Egypt Is An Ally'

    President Carter spoke to Drake University in Des Moines and was asked if he agrees with what Obama said about Egypt:

    Carter: "Egypt is an ally of the US, we know Egypt well."

    President Obama had earlier stated during an interview: Obama: 'Ya know, I don’t think that we would consider them an ally, but we do not consider them an enemy. '
