    Egyptian editor Mostafa Bakry isn't exactly rolling out the welcome mat for Americans. In a televised interview, he accused the United States of having a secret plot to kill General Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and said that if the country acted on it, the Egyptian people would lead a “revolution to kill the Americans in the streets.” Of President Obama and his “puppets,” Bakry said, “we will enter their houses, and we will kill them one by one.” He has since tried to back away from his comments, claiming "The intention was to highlight Egyptian independence, and our adamant refusal to allow any outside party, be that the U.S. or any other party, to interfere in internal Egyptian affairs."
