Goverment Double Talk in Egypt: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Day 14 of protests in Tahrir Square and the Egyptian government has denied any involvement in the attacks by mobs on peaceful demonstrators and reporters. They say they have no idea how these things happened. But the Egyptian military stood there and let it happen. We're Keeping Them Honest.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    I like the SW flight attendant with the Rap song safety briefing. I've had him. And also their hip-hop flight attendant, who is even better. In both cases, EVERY passenger on the plane was riveted on his performance. The typical safety briefing is drowned out by lots of people talking, and those who need to hear it (not me, Gold on 3 airlines, but many people) cannot hear.

    Thank you for being with us and thank you for your sincerity and honor. I'm glad to see you well rested, although my heart aches when I remember what happened to you in Cairo. We miss you and please come back soon and hopefully you will be in the new Egypt, the "Free Egypt", where we can "really" protect you... God bless.

    An excellent in-depth analysis of the repressive Egyptian regime and the brutal security services. I find it hard to accept that we've called Mubarak a moderate and indirectly support human violations because it serves US interests. Keep up the coverage Anderson and I hope your colleagues on the ground in Cairo will keep us posted. Many thanks. Ilonka

    Now is the time for the U.S. to show muslims that they defend democracy and freedom for all, what evere religion. Saudi Arabia is wrong in advising not to out Mubarak, it's best to see Mubarak for who he is. The Egyptians can now see how the U.S. government cares and wants them free from dictatorship.

    Hi Anderson, Tonight, I watched you with great respect. I've seen the passion in your eyes and voice from Haiti to Egypt, but I simply loved what seemed to be a "focused" anger at the situation in Egypt.
    This kind of passion we need in the Media. It just shows that the Media cares... and I do care about your view and also your personal experience. Both were shown tonight and you bring a whiff of fresh air in spite of the horrible situation in Egypt.
    You Go Anderson.
