The U.S. and Egypt: diplomatic contortions

This article provides a more honest appraisal of the role of the U.S. in Egypt at this moment of crisis and promise than is likely to be found in U.S. media. The U.S. response to demands for democratic government by Egyptians has probably rightfully discredited the Obama administration in the minds of many Egyptians. To claim to be a supporter of democracy at one moment, and to praise Mubarak fulsomely the next is dreadful hypocrisy.
