Well, let's not go to those extremes- Egypt is an American ally and there has been a Coup d'Etat. It's not like Obama can just ignore all of it and just go watch football on TV as if nothing had happened, and "I'm concerned" doesn't mean that he approves or disapproves or wants to invade the country, just that... he's worried because nobody knows what's exactly going to happen next. He's not "getting involved in foreign issues", he's just commenting on them, and giving a harmless opinion, at that.
Honestly, when in 1982 a group of crazy army members took over the Spanish Congress and tried to install a dictatorship, we weren't extremely happy that the US said "Well, it's just Spanish business, we'll stay away from the issue"- quite the contrary, in fact.
"Los españoles son muy españoles y mucho españoles. Muchas gracias"
- Mariano Rajoy, presidente del Gobierno de España.
