Egypt — the world, it seems — is moving so fast, it’s difficult to follow. I’ve been watching on Al Jazzera English, which has been the best news channel not on TV in the U.S. for quite some time now (especially when things get hot. Georgia/Russia, anyone? Gaza War?).
Below this post is Emad Mekay’s dictated dispatch from Cairo by phone, which I worked into an IPS piece that included the big speeches from teetering (with one hand behind his back?) Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and, after a 30 minute delay, during which the two had their own phone chat, U.S. President Barack Obama.
For a focus on how U.S. officialdom is reaction — playing catch up, basically — check out the other IPS piece I co-authored, this one with Jim Lobe. Me? I’m going to get some sleep. But expect more soon.
