The Anti-US component of the uprising in Egypt

The US media don't report that the protests in Egypt today (and previously) have a strong anti-US component.  Many signs in the protests are directed at the US and its perceived support for Morsi.  In the interviews on the streets today, especially on New TV, many protesters directed their anger at the US for its embrace of Morsi, in return for security cooperation with Israel.  People here still think that Arabs are too dumb to notice what is happening.
