Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last week signed off on $1.3 billion in military aid to Egypt despite the country’s poor human rights record since the revolution more than a year ago. Gallup released a poll today finding that a large majority of Egyptians are skeptical of American assistance. According to the poll, 82 percent said they oppose the United States sending economic aid to Egypt, “up 11 percentage points since December and up 30 points since April 2011 when Gallup first posed the question.”
