To Pres. Obama and Sec. Clinton, re: Egypt

with one comment

Dear Mr. President,

I voted for you, just to be for sure, and hold you in high esteem.
Nonetheless, I am confused and disappointed in your reactions to Egyptian protests.

The Egyptian people have voiced their decision. It can not be made more clear that the Egyptian people do not feel that FORMER Pres. Mubarak represents their interests, and have, effectively, fired him. They do not want him to hang on until September and run an election, or have any hand in a transition. They do not trust him to run an election. After all, he has won every election for 30 years, while stepping on their freedoms.

I implore you, and Sec. Clinton, whom I also hold in high regard, to acknowledge the Egyptian people’s clearly expressed decision!
Do NOT make a fool of the US the World over by insisting in this ridiculous notion that he can somehow be trusted to work in some form of transition. He must step down now. That is painfully clear. That is what the Egyptian people want.

We, as a freedom-loving people, must support the decision of the Egyptian people! We can no longer speak of Mr. Mubarak as their president.
Your predecessor made us a fool in foreign eyes. Your election as our leader restored some faith in the American People in the eyes of many foreigners. Do not squander that faith. Show the world that WE AMERICANS ARE A FREEDOM-LOVING PEOPLE, and WE SUPPORT the FREEDOM of the Egyptian people, that WE respect their right to decide their destiny, and their decision to remove Mr. Mubarak.
