Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., recently visited Egypt to survey the political situation there after a military-backed takeover of the government displaced President Mohamed Morsi.

McCain and Graham encouraged the leaders of Egypt’s interim government to release political prisoners associated with Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood and to broaden political talks as they look to bridge the gap between the interim government and Morsi’s supporters, who aren’t too happy he was toppled.
