UPDATE (May 16, 2015): Morsi sentenced to death!
If I understand this correctly…Morsi was a political prisoner under a tyrannical regime who broke out of jail when the revolution came. He subsequently ran for election as President and won. Hillary acknowledged and arguably even supported him. US National Security Advisor Susan Rice then participated in a coup against him (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/07/world/middleeast/morsi-spurned-deals-to-the-end-seeing-the-military-as-tamed.html?_r=0), which ultimately installed the prior regime’s henchman El Sisi and now Morsi has been tried, convicted and sentenced to death for breaking out of prison in the first place.
I can’t say I’m surprised. When he was first ousted, I noted that having an arguably legitimate president on the sidelines ready to lead the counter-coup opposition was a bad idea (that’s why the Bolsheviks killed Tsar Nicholas II–so there was no going back)..In my opinion, that’s why Hussein & Qaddafi were both killed & why Morsi & elected Ukrainian president Yanukovich were both charged with capital crimes.
