The US and Egypt

It is common knowledge that the US gives money to the military in Egypt. So it is strange to hear their spokespeople speaking as if they were just observers only interested in the "peaceful transition to democracy".

If they are so involved with one side, should they comment at all?
Should they just come clean about their interests and simply say they want to keep the Muslim Brotherhood out?
Should they stop these payments?
Should they give them to the elected leader who ever that is or do they have a right to choose who they aid?

The message seems to be "we support democracy as long as you vote for the people we like".

Just be clear, I don't support the MB in any way. I disagree with almost everything they stand for but I am not an Egyptian voter.
