Pretty Amazing coverage!!!
I've been suspicious of that Egyptian revolution since it began. At the time there were some posts here on DP referencing the Facebook site that ended up supposedly getting the whole thing rolling. interested, I became happy about the prospect of freedom for the Egyptian people and thought is was really exciting. I had to find out more and I began looking for info on Al Jezeera since it wasn't being adequately covered in our media. But I found the coverage on Al Jezeera was so eerily crafted like CNN. What's more, they kept playing this segment in their loop about the inner-workings of the master minds of the revolution...who were in upscale digs (for Egypt) with computers, office equipment and a group of insiders with well orchestrated plans...right down to how they were going to walk down particular streets to mobilize residents and pedestrians to join them...it seemed so CIA...particularly since all of it was being mini-documented with a professional camera crew- I mean, if they can gain access, why wasn't mubarak's thugs breaking down the door...ya gotta wonder. Then there was also, at around the same time, the odd disappearance of the guy who set up the website and these weird interviews he was having with the local news caster...he returned and hadn't been beaten or hurt...the whole thing just did not appear to be organic...the guy didn't live in Egypt and was employed by Google...I don't know the whole thing reeks. Nothing about what happens over there is to be believed.
Has all of history been crafted and cleansed? It has me wondering if we really have any more insight into any period of history, the present included, than we have of the caveman period.
