"Mister T, you're my friend most expert in Egyptian facts... what is
your take on what is happening in your homeland? Some of us Americans
want the straight-up truth."

Anyone have factual answers here?

Perhaps this independent newspaper
can help. It is called "The Egyptian Today."

Well, what is circulated in Egyptian satelite
channels from previous state secratries
is that Egypt was pirated by 70
or 80 individuals who had connection to
Mubarak's two sons and wife.

There are also reports that from 2000 to 2008 about
60 billion dollars have left poor Egypt due to corruption,
crime and tax evasion, which makes Egypt one of
the worst countries in Africa in that regard (third).

The report also says that in 2005 the lower fifith of
the population recieves 8.96 % from Egypt's income
while the top fifth recieves 41.46 %. The gap got wider
in the last five years no doubt.

The protesters were smart to focus on Mubarak.
Now that Mubarak has fallen, all the shit is coming
out and hopefully something will be done to correct
this nonesense.
