President Obama seems uncertain.
Or simply wrong. The State Department correctly identifies Egypt as an American ally; POTUS says that it isn't.
Wanna bet you'll hear about this on the network news, or Letterman, or even Leno?
ADDENDUN: The gaffe was mentioned in passing on Washington Week in Review. Otherwise, it seems that as far as the mainstream media is concerned, it might as well never have happened.
Now if Dubyah or Sarah Palin or Mitt Romney had denied that Egypt was an American ally....
