Seriously, when Israel lobbyist Martin Indyk – who loves to preach to Arabs that America cares deeply about democracy, as long as Zionism is helped along the way – says things like this, in today’s New York Times, you have to wonder why he continues being quoted:
“The administration had been looking toward Suleiman to handle the orderly part of the orderly transition,” said Martin S. Indyk, the director of foreign policy at the Brookings Institution. “But this week, he raised doubts about whether he had made the conversion to a democrat. And now Mubarak has dragged Suleiman down with him, in the eyes of the protesters.”
Suleiman could be a democrat? Yes, I’m sure his torturing past has been totally repented.
