Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee: "Obama must warn Morsi over power grab."(TheHill).Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Sunday that he believes President Obama must signal strong concern to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi over the leader's move to exempt himself from judicial oversight. The power grab has sparked violent protests in the streets of Cairo, and Levin warned that there was danger "a democratically-elected autocrat take the place of an undemocratically-elected dictator." "[President Obama] has to express those concerns and say, obviously, we want this change to not just be democratic but also supportive of stability and also protecting minorities and human rights in Egypt," Levin said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press."Read the full story here.
