Breaking: Hosni Mubarak Resigns As President!

http://english.aljazeera.net/news/middleeast/2011/02/2011211...

Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, has resigned from his post, handing over power to the armed forces.

Omar Suleiman, the vice-president, announced in a televised address that the president was "waiving" his office, and had handed over authority to the Supreme Council of the armed forces.

Earlier, massive crowds have gathered across Egypt, including hundreds of thousands of protesters in and around Cairo's Tahrir [Liberation] Square, calling for Mubarak to stand down.

Pro-democracy activists in the Egyptian capital also marched on the presidential palace and state television buildings on Friday, the 18th consecutive day of protests.

Anger at state television

At the state television building, thousands have blocked people from entering or leaving, accusing the broadcaster of supporting the current government and of not truthfully reporting on the protests.

"The military has stood aside and people are flooding through [a gap where barbed wire has been moved aside]," Al Jazeera's correspondent at the state television building reported.

He said it was not clear if they planned to storm the building, but said that "a lot of anger [was] generated" after Mubarak's speech last night, where he repeated his vow to complete his term as president.

"The activity isn't calm, but there are a lot of people here who are tired of not having their demands met," he said.

Egyptian state television announced on Friday evening that an "urgent" televised message from the presidential palace was due "shortly".

I just hope (as jc-philippines already stated in another thread) that the USGovt/Imperial Planners will NOT try to hijack the Egyptian People Power.... As jc-philippines mentioned, the indicator that they have already had their way, will be when the corporate-manipulated media begins to spin it as a "democratic revolution" or anything positive to that effect...

You're welcome!

Btw, I also posted a thread about this incredible happening (just moments after it had been reported on CNN), but then I noticed that you had beat me to it - by just 8 minutes, so I deleted mine. You've got to be quick around here! :)
