Scott Horton Interviews Ahmed al-Assy
Ahmed al-Assy, an Egyptian-American living in Egypt and a participant in the Tahrir Square protests, discusses the latest flareup between protesters reoccupying Tahrir Square and Egypt’s security apparatus; promoting instead of punishing those responsible for murdering protesters; the long prison sentences for activists and journalists, handed down by kangaroo courts; why Egyptians won’t tolerate an indefinite delay of democratic elections and reforms; American puppet candidate Omar Suleiman out of power but operating in the shadows; and the setback in Gaza relations and the Rafah border crossing.
