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.

    If the Army moves in, this will be over in a few minutes.

    @nancyinoregon,
    "Anderson is really angry."
    I think that we all are! They are feeding the people double messages, and are so arrogant about. Clearly, people have never questioned their actions before.

    If Mubarak has lost control of the army and the police what authority does he have?

    Does this make you wonder what would have happened if Western reporters had not been there?

    Please be careful, Anderson, about using the word 'lies'. It's a loaded word. Be wise.

    VP Sulieman said that he believes foreigners are responsible for the unrest in the streets, but failed to point fingers at anyone or any country in particular. Someone should ask the Egyptian government to elaborate on their suspicions.

    Bloggers,

    The Egyptian brutal regime needs to go. So much violence against innocent people. Mubarak is a tyrant.

    Hi Anderson,
    May be you could answer or ask this question on my behalf to important figures.
    How a political regime can self-destruct or self-terminate itself?
    Unlike a computer system where you put a password and once activated it destroys all.
    How is that possible for human beings ?
    This so called "transition period" or "vacuum effect" is laughable. Politicians need to stop underestimating the intelligence of the people they are addressing. Unless it's the same intels that reported about weapon of mass destruction in Iraq are feeding information to the White House. Although they should be in prison by now for the blood they have on their hands. At least U see it. Thanks!

    It is quite obvious that Mubarak is trying to stop reporters from reporting the truth.

    February 7, 2011 at 10:09 pm |
  13. Sharon Hastings

    I doubt there are too many people who believe anything Mubarak or that government has to say. You're right. I do fear for the safety of the protestors since you and other journalists have left. All we need to know to understand all this is that the Army did nothing to stop the violence and Mubarak is still there.

    Anderson, it is so good to have you back, you gave us many scares, not just about yourself
    but for those poor people in Egypt, who are fighting for freedom, you covered the situation with you usual amazing reporting.
    Thank you.
    I hope that your medical check up tomorrow goes well.

    Anderson is really angry. I hope he stays safe...and as a journalist, I hope he can stay fairly 'objective' too. It would be a challenge too great for many of us, myself included, but for journalists it seems essential.

    I am glad to see Anderson is back at home and reporting what is right!

    Why hasn't Mr. ElBaradei asked for the International Community to speak up?

    Shame on Prime Mininster Ahmed S...... Arrest all journlists are wrong thing to do!

    Thank you Anderson for defining "Emergency" power in Egypt.

    I saw this interview with Candy C. & the Prime Minister. He was outrageous in his devience from the question.
    Then when he formulated an answer, he belittled Candy by calling her "my dear".

    It's obvious, quite obvious that the present regime continues its "old ways" and lies to us and the Egyptian people.

    Thanks Anderson for your honest reporting on Egypt.

    Ahmed Shafig was just dancing around Candy's questions...

    Hi everyone. Mubarak claims that he is not responsible for the violence perpetrated by the pro-Mubarak mob, but he has done nothing to stop it. Is he then admitting that he does not have control of the police or the army?

    The military is pro mubarak, what else is new?

  25. Cessy - Chicago

    friends from Cairo are telling us the same thing. My aunt and uncle just came back and they said that the reports are totally different from what is really going on there. This is a work of a dictator!

    'My dear'. Uh oh. Condescending?

    I heard that Journalists were being arrested at gun point! (marching them to jails, etc.)
    Is that true?

    Hi, Anderson glad your back. Yes, you're right can't trust the Egypt government. And anyone who is contacted to Mubarak.

    I hope if Anderson does go back, a bit of time has passed. His comments right now could put him at risk.

    Both mubarak and Omar Suleiman need to resign. They are different sides on the same coin!!! Same government, same tactics.
