Washington (CNN) - With developments in Egypt looming over his weekend trip to Camp David, President Barack Obama held a conference call with his national security team Saturday as the administration deals with what it calls "the very fluid situation."
The meeting came on a day of growing leadership questions in Egypt, as Mohamed ElBaredei for hours was reported to be on the brink of becoming Egypt's interim prime minister, but those reports were later denied.
Obama is trying to figure out how to reinstate the dictator Morsi........so Obama can continue to wield influence in other people's affairs.
Meet the Press is on soon. Is McCain going to be on there saying how we need to arm the opposition in Egypt?
I think Pres.Obama after meeting with his cabinet figured to stay out of the way and let their country run its course because maybe even after a democratic elections they're still have far to go in finding someone who is truelly for their people and we as Americans shouldn't interfere not knowing really who is the new face of Egypt...It's been relatively peaceful so far with little deaths and it's a far cry from what's going on in their region in Syria with their civil unrest because of their dictator leader who they've been unable to unseat resulting in a civil war..Let Egypt again run its course and maybe it'll show others how responsible,peaceful actions in a country can bring instead of civil unrest,wars that bring on death,destruction something no country wants or needs in these times of uncertainty!!
Obama is investing too much time into the situation in Egypt. I don't see other countries doing what he is doing.
Obama options under such situations normally end up in two strategic considerations......viz, supporting the Democratic forces and the Islamic Fundamentalist, which the former are always more acceptable to the West. But how about the emphasis being someone acceptable to the Egyptians from any of the side & then democratizing the person. This is possible when the leadership faces real world situation, & could only find out Americans to be his willing friends. Any imposition of unacceptable leadership could only serve to impair a worsening situation.
let the middle east sort out their own problems-no guns no money
Are there only about four senators in the senate? why do we constantly hear from the same ones on these sunday shows?
Stay out of it! No more Pottery Barn diplomacy!!
Let Biden do it. Obama has lost credibility
at home, term 2. He certainly cannot help Egypt.
