…Where’s Morsi? #egypt

Possibly arranging for a villa on the French Riviera:

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy “is no longer a part of the decision-making circle,” the state-run Al-Ahram newspaper said Wednesday, citing “a senior official source.”

“The president is no longer able to make any political decisions now and a decision has been taken to prevent leaders loyal to the current regime from traveling overseas until the General Command of the Armed Forces are finished formulating their expected statement,” it added.

That’s how these things usually end, when it’s more convenient for everyone involved that blood not run in the streets.  Which would be good.

PS: …Well, that was an incredibly counter-productive use of American soft power in order to effect change in a foreign country.
