    New Egypt? 7,000 civilians jailed since Mubarak fell

    All that new found freedom and democracy is rockin' in Egypt. Hope-n-Change, baby!

    I was unaware that Obama was in charge of arresting people in Egypt. Good find.

    I wasn't blaming O'Bama, but since you brought it up, who did O'Bama support in the uprising?

    Obama's choice had little to do with the civil liberties of the Egyptian people. Mubarak had outlived his usefulness when he lost control of the country and supporting the new rulers put America in a better position. The Egyptians can chart their own course, the role of the president is to focus on our own national interests.
