Despite the issues raised in a preceding post (scroll down), I'm glad that Hosni has finally said hasta la vista.
Word has it that the man who vowed to die in Egypt has hustled himself off to the UAE
. Maybe he and Waed Ghonim have an apartment-swap deal.
Let's hope that the Egyptians can now erect a real democracy, instead of a D.C.-friendly sham with fig-leaf elections.
What a muddle this thing was and is! Lots of mixed signals from Mubarak, the Egyptian military, the Obama administration, and the American right. One day we'll know what really happened.
