More than $1 billion in US aid to Egypt is in jeopardy given the abrupt power shift in Cairo. Former National Security Council staffer Michael Singh says Washington's military and economic assistance hasn't bought it much leverage in the changing Egyptian landscape.
"It's very hard to exercise influence in a crisis like this," Singh says. "We didn't focus enough on preparing for what might come next and were not thinking enough about civil society and mass movements and the other players on the scene who might become important in a crisis."
Anchor Marco Werman gets more details from Singh, who is the managing director of The Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
