#1 This court ruling is just the latest incident that appears to contradict the U.S. White House's positive spin that began with use of the term "Arab Spring"...
In retrospect it's almost comical the manner in which the O-Team managed the Egyptian coup d'état. The hook for Hosni and Son was inevitable. However, if there ever was a time to attempt the proverbial dictator's soft landing -- Cairo was it. The Progressive/Marxist/Unionists never stood a chance to overwhelm the more established Islamists. Rather than exercising whatever leverage against the Egyptian military the Obama Whitehouse had instead it chose to focus all of its resources on developing a narrative. Arguably, this is an example of President Obama's greatest liability -- his predictability. He will always make a decision based on what (they think) will have the most favorable perception for the president himself.
