Jeffrey Goldberg, Bloomberg
This morning, President Barack Obama condemned the Egyptian military's slaughter of Muslim Brotherhood members and sympathizers, and canceled joint military exercises scheduled for next month. He said that the violence should stop and that "a process of national reconciliation should begin."
What the White House fails to understand is that the Egyptian military has very different ideas about what "reconciliation" should look like.
