Attention America, Obama just praised a revolution:
“There are few moments in our lives where we have the privilege to witness history taking place,” Obama said. “This is one of those moments. This is one of those times.”
“The people of Egypt have spoken, their voices have been heard and Egypt will never be the same.”
“This is not the end of Egypt’s transition,” the president said. “It’s a beginning.”
With the military now in power in Egypt, U.S. officials are watching with a wary and hopeful eye that a new government will honor Mubarak’s treaties, especially with regard to Israel.
Obama praised the non-violent efforts of the Egyptian protesters [What channel was he watching? — Sad Hill] and the restraint of the military, and pressed the new regime to continue with a transition fully representative of the Egyptian people that would include “free and fair” elections for a new president.
The protesters made clear, Obama said, that “nothing less than genuine democracy will carry the day.”
