Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.
He's given his 'protection' to the Demonstrations, and called for all communications to be reopened.
I strongly suspect this President is 'with' the protesters, at least personally.
Strategically this is about is touchy as it gets.
Alliances, Arms, etc, very big potential problems.
IF the demonstrations expand over the weekend and show to be overwhelming will of the people, and IF the Egyptian Army is too heavy-handed, I think you'll see him make another statement Sunday Night, or so, that is less ambiguous.
Right now his call for "Dialogue" with the govt, I have to say IS somewhat 'chickening out'.
There really is none with Mubarrak; that's the whole point of the Protest.
He is supposed to appoint a new cabinet tomorrow.
I can't foresee that will help.
Commentators on CNN are saying it all swings on the Military; which apparently is still/so far acting at Mubarrak's orders.
Protesters, however, are also appealing to the Military, who they like/respect more than the Riot Police.
Let's see what the weekend brings.

I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
The United States is no more responsible for Mubarack retaining power than Sarah Palin is for the Safeway shooting. To claim so is the pinnacle of stupidity, or denial of reality, take you pick. I think it has more to do with a natural hatred for Americans, than anything else.
