US senators in Cairo discuss developments

Source: Press TV

In the first US senate visit to Egypt after the revolution, congressmen John McCain and Joseph Lieberman met with Secretary General of the Arab League Amr Mussa to discuss the latest developments in Egypt.

However, members of the Muslim Brotherhood have a different idea. They say that under the pretext of support for democratic reforms, the United States is trying to steer the Egyptian revolution in a different direction, one that would protect the long-standing US and Israeli interests. Muslim Brotherhood Leader Esam el Arian had this to say:

Given the misjudgments and miscues of the recent past, many in Egypt are of the opinion that Americans should acknowledge that the U.S. cannot determine what will come next. In its own interests and in the interests of those engaged in their own struggle for freedom and opportunity, the say, the U.S. should get out of the way.
