US Military to Egypt?


KCEN-TV is reporting (via Drudge) that a group of US soldiers from Fort Hood are preparing to deploy to Egypt in a riot control capacity and to "protect" Egypt's border with Israel.

The brief report raises far more questions than it answers, such as why the US military is protecting the Israel/Egypt border, whether this actually means the US military is helping enforce the Israeli blockade of the Gaza strip, and why the US military is being used to defend the Egyptian regime in the case of civil unrest.

Finally, from where does the president get the authority to send US troops into potentially hostile territory?
