Why exactly are the US sending a woman from a disgraced marriage to demand human rights from an outwardly Islamic government?

Cell phone services as well.

"Egyptian authorities asked mobile operators to "turn down the network totally," said Vittorio Colao, chief executive of U.K.-based Vodafone Group PLC, which owns 55% of Egypt's largest carrier, Vodafone Egypt."

I was trying to catch some of Obamas
speach tonite on the matter, and missed it.

What is going on over there?

Vodaphone must be mental.

People who understand that they might need to stay resourceful to leave a country quickly . . . well they're valuable customers and support for a company like Vodaphone.

This is so strange it's surreal.

Well CNN etc. and the British foreign office seem to have a policy of 'trust what they say on Egyptian TV' 🙄 and I tend to crash if I click on links for Al Jazeera.

One of the very best blogs in web history went dark the week prior to this event unfolding. Initially I thought the guy just got bored, now I'm not so sure. Everything they had over there is now silent. I find that very very interesting. I should have kept it logged, I regret deleting the footprint. When I get time I'll go back through some old posts here and recapture the wordpress location just to see if he reappears--

He'd be all over this one! 😉

Can't wait to see who's hands end up on this one. This isn't a problem for the US or the so called allies. At the end of the day it'll just prove to be another country who JUST CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT US. One back scratching the other right before your very eyes! 😉

What's going on over there is best summed up by:
What's going on over [email protected]`~~~ 😉

1:28 PM ET: Some Egyptian Senior Military leaders may not be in Cairo right now. That's because they're in Washington attending the annual U.S.-Egypt Military Cooperation Committee meetings.

From CNN:

Some of Egypt's most senior military officials were inside the Pentagon Friday, even as Egyptian Army vehicles rolled through the streets of Cairo.

They're attending the annual U.S.-Egypt Military Cooperation Committee meetings to discuss military training, security assistance and defense industrial cooperation.

All four heads of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines were scheduled to meet with the Egyptian officials. The sessions are being hosted by Alexander Vershbow, the U.S. assistant secretary of defense for International Security Affairs.
