Egypt does not want McCain and Graham? How strange. The new government says it does not want to be interfered with by ajanib (foreigners). How strange. Bill Burns, the EU people, the Qataris, etc. have all been made to look foolish and the United States along with them.

Having tried so nobly to tell Egypt how to behave it would seem only right that the McCain/Graham peace train should roll on to yet more and even browner pastures.
