Well this is embarrassing:

The first senior U.S. official to visit Egypt since the army toppled its elected president was snubbed by both Islamists and their opponents on Monday.

Deputy Secretary of State William Burns arrived in a divided capital where both sides are furious at the United States, the superpower which supports Egypt with $1.5 billion in annual aid, mostly for the army that deposed Islamist President Mohamed Mursi two weeks ago.

Remember when President Obama travelled to Egypt in 2009 to give a big speech to make the Arab world love and respect us again after eight years of bumbling by that stupid cowboy that everybody hated?

Me neither.
