Protestors in Egypt are continuing their anti-government demonstrations in Tahrir Square asking that President Hosni Mubarak step down immediately instead of waiting until the September elections. Many have voiced their disapproval with President Obama after he made comments supporting a gradual transition led by Egypt's vice president.
The Egyptian government began negotiations with opposition groups on Sunday and President Obama said that Egypt is not going back to the way it was before the protests began. Earlier this week, President Obama would not say when Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak would step down or what role the Muslim Brotherhood should play in any future Egyptian government.
The Hudson Institute today sponsored a discussion on the current political unrest in Egypt, the various parties opposing the government, and policy implication for the West.
