Obama's Statement on Egypt

"Obama says Egypt's transition 'must begin now'"  CNN Wire Staff.  CNN.com. February 1, 2011.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has vowed to not run for reelection.  In the thirty years of oppression under the rule of Mubarak, Mr. Obama stated that now begins a new history and new relationship.  The United States' main ally in the Arab world is Egypt; Egypt is also a vital partner in the Middle East peace process along with their treaty with Israel.

Interesting statements made by the President seeking for change and peaceful reform in Egypt.
