The American Embassy in Cairo helped a young dissident attend a US-sponsored summit for activists in New York, while working to keep his identity secret from Egyptian state police.
On his return to Cairo in December 2008, the activist told US diplomats that an alliance of opposition groups had drawn up a plan to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak and install a democratic government in 2011.
This is about something that started under the Bush administration and continued apace with no change under the Obama administration. Partisans, be not gullible, be not fooled, lest ye look like fools.
Those protesting Egyptians should be very wary.
John Kerry and Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton meddled BIG time in Honduras, too, backing a socialist demagogue in Manuel Zelaya who had already begun his coup d’etat, making it formal in the official Gazette the Wednesday before his quick exit June 28, 2009.
He was removed in a legitimate restoration of constitutional order.
Beware of international media reporting on Middle East events too. The reports on Honduras were completely backwards. You got only lies. AP-originated stories were among the worst, and the CNN became a target of mass protests by Hondurans.
One Honduran-American told me she had voted for Obama and would never make that stupid mistake again.
