Letter on Egypt to President Obama

In November 2008 many voted for "Change".  As far as foreign policy goes, nothing has changed.  It is still the same old "national security" and "national interest" leading to greater insecurity and results contrary to our real national interests.

If you haven't already read Andrew Bacevich's "Washington Rules", please do so as soon as possible.

The U.S. is still propping up anti-democratic autocrats like Hosni Mubarak despite very strong dissatisfaction from a large number of people.  And U.S. diplomats are still supportive of him, buying his line that he is standing between stability and chaos.  Remember the Shah of Iran and his Savak.
