Obama Speaks To The Chaos In Egypt


“Wanted to be “very clear” that Egyptian authorities should avoid violence against  Egyptian political protesters.

Moreover,  there “must be reform, political social and economic reforms that meet the aspirations of the Egyptian people.”  “In the Arab world, a new generation of citizens has a right to be heard.”

Barack Obama in his latest effort to put his administration on the side of younger Arabs seeking democratic change.

America’s support and understanding disintegrated when Mr. Mubarak unleashed first his security forces and then his army on protesters, after cutting off their ability to communicate on the Internet despite explicit pleas from the Obama administration that he refrain from those steps.
