Egypt protests: secret US document discloses support for protesters

Posted: January 31, 2011 in Uncategorized

All,

Well, it was a nice dream.

It appeared that for a change, Egypt might actually get a genuine democracy.  But alas, with secret U.S. involvement, it was not meant to be.

The face may change in the presidential palace in Cairo, but little else will.  Gazans will continue to starve slowly to death, and Egyptians will remain frustrated by the lack of democracy in their country.

Here is a secret U.S. diplomatic cable that shows clearly that the U.S. has been planning this thing for at least a year.

This explains why, with so much for Israel at stake in this revolution, that there is no real evidence of panic in Jerusalem.  Apparently, they already know that they have nothing to fear from this revolt.

The only real question, then, is why the U.S. is interested in replacing such a reliable and pliant puppet as Hosni Mubarak.  That one is really a hard question to answer, and only after the dust settles will we have time to understand the whys.

The Greeks ruled Egypt for a time, then the Romans.  After that, it was the Ottomans, the French, the British and now the USAnians.  Egyptians will have to wait longer for a taste of self-rule.

Egypt protests: secret US document discloses support for protesters
Here is the secret document sent from the US Embassy in Cairo to Washington disclosing the extent of American support for the protesters behind the Egypt uprising.

“…On December 23, April 6 activist xxxxxxxxxxxx expressed

satisfaction with his participation in the December 3-5 \”Alliance of

Youth Movements Summit,\” and with his subsequent meetings with USG

officials, on Capitol Hill, and with think tanks. He described how

State Security (SSIS) detained him at the Cairo airport upon his

return and confiscated his notes for his summit presentation calling

for democratic change in Egypt, and his schedule for his Congressional

meetings. xxxxxxxxxxxx contended that the GOE will never undertake

significant reform, and therefore, Egyptians need to replace the

current regime with a parliamentary democracy. He alleged that

several opposition parties and movements have accepted an unwritten

plan for democratic transition by 2011; we are doubtful of this claim.

xxxxxxxxxxxx said that although SSIS recently released two April 6

activists, it also arrested three additional group members. We have

pressed the MFA for the release of these April 6 activists. April 6’s

stated goal of replacing the current regime with a parliamentary

democracy prior to the 2011 presidential elections is highly

unrealistic, and is not supported by the mainstream opposition. End

summary and comment…”
