The removal of Mohammed Morsi by the military was the culmination of nearly a year of acrimonious relations between the armed forces chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and Egypt’s first freely elected _ and first civilian _ president. According to a series of interviews by The Associated Press with defense, security, intelligence and Muslim Brotherhood officials, the two clashed over policies toward protests in the streets and over Islamic militants in Sinai, with el-Sissi bristling at Morsi’s orders and at times even ignoring them. Each believed the other was conspiring to remove him. And when an activist group began working toward massive protests to remove Morsi, the military early on lent its help from behind the scenes.
