Good night Emily, Mike, Starr, Nicole, Nancy in Oregon, and Megan.
CONGRATULATIONS to the People of Egypt! The world is a better place because of their non violent success!! This will hinder the ability of extremists to brainwash followers into accepting violence as a solution!!
History has shown that people of many faiths and religions can live, trade and proper together if we eliminate the power-hungry,greedy extremist groups!
Ivan, Ben, Fred, Nic, Arwa, and Anderson, thanks for being our eyes and ears in Egypt
Once again Anderson and all the team, you have done such an incredible job. Hard to put it in words. I hope you can rest and recoup your energy. Have a wonderful weekend Egypt and everyone. I am so happy for you.
Good Night Everyone! "Freedom for us all!" Have a good weekend, everyone and "Happy I Like You Weekend!".
Anderson . .Thanks to you and CNN for all your coverage of Egypt the past 18 days. Great Job..you let us live the story from day to day.
What a fitting conclusion day to Gibbs' time at the WH podium. I thought he handled his finale day - 250th briefing - fabulously. Nice to see his tie being framed and all that...
As a proud Egyptian ,Anderson ,I would like to thank you ,you have "kept it honest" ,with great analysis that helped not only expose the lies of the regime but show the real egyptian spirit.
I feel we owe you more than a mere thank you,you risked your life to get the truth to the world.Freedom ,Peace and Dignity to all.
Good night Anderson, Isha, 360°Team, Jo Ann, Mike, Megan, Nicole, Nancy, Gloria, Starr, Jana, Nina, Maha & Bloggers.
Thanks for this coverage, Anderson!
Wonderful show & blog, as always.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
As an Egyptian-American, who has followed the coverage of the revolution on Arabic and western media over 10 hours a day each of the 18 days, I want to thank you Anderson and the entire CNN team for the amazing job you've done. I don't think the outcome would have been the same without you!
Good night Anderson! Good night Everyone! Sweet dreams. Thank you to all of the heroes involved in the coverage of Egypt, especially you Anderson. I am so glad you are safe. Have a wonderful weekend.
@Anderson – I love the reporter's roundtable. Ivan, & Ben, as well as Arwa Damon & Nick R. and their teams have been extraordinarily brave while providing excellent coverage.
So have you Anderson. With great thanks to All of you.
Thank you and good night – great program and a great way to go into a weekend.
Good night fellow writers, it's been a heck of a conversation these last several weeks.
I am especially grateful for the Egyptians who educated us and joined our conversation.
God bless & keep Egypt as it moves into a Democratic country.
I wish you All a safe and peaceful weekend.
Another magnificent AC360 show tonight... extraordinary coverage by Anderson Cooper, all CNN Reporters, Support Staff, Guests, etc... I'm riding the wave of freedom today, in Spirit, with all of you tonight... thank you, everyone!!!
Thanks for your honest reporting from Egypt over the last 18 days. Thanks on behalf of all Egyptians.
I would love to hear a round table discussion with the reporters who were there today to witness history so that they can describe what it was like being in Egypt today and how they felt in the days leading up to Egyptian freedom.
Wonder how long people will stay in Tahrir square... people do not seem to be breaking from the crowd there... Celebration full scale! They truly deserve it.
Good night everyone. Congratulations Egypt. A bright new day for all of you.
Gibbs lift the White House?
I didn't know that!

Have a great/good night and sleep at home. Great weekend! See you on Monday night!!! Just a plenty sleep and rest at home!
Congratulations the people of Egypt!!!
May your tireless and unrelenting efforts be an example to all the oppressed people around the world. First, Tunisia and now Egypt. I know all dictators are having sleepless nights these days.
I cannot wait to see a day when the dictator of my beloved nation of Eritrea is made to step down.
Anderson and crew: you guys are The Best! 🙂
To the Egyptians:
You are all an inspiration to the World tonight...
Congratulations! Tahya Masr!(Long live Egypt!)
Personally, I think the military will do right by the people. And is why the people trust them.
FOr those who do like candles. Light one tonight for the those still detained that they might find freedom !
I would like to thank dr ajami for the way he described Cairo city um aldonia the mother of the world and Anderson you are the best
I agree with your concern. After all, we’ve watched the army allow the thugs to go into Tahreer square without searching them. It’s not over, and I think Egypt still has a big battle to go through to turn the power from the military to a civil government, especially with Tantawi (Mubarak’s Puppy) being the head of the army. You have a very valid concern.
peace and love this weekend everyone.
Please pray that the Egyptian ppl do not allow someone to take over their country that will be equal to Mubarak. I wish them all the best!!!
One quick parting thought. Feb. 11 was King Farouk's birthday. A man who preferred to walk out in order not to see another Egyptian hurt. His beautiful soul must be smiling down from heaven.
It really is interesting to see which countries the people are happy in, and which ones they want many changes in. (Egypt vs. Jordan, etc)
I noticed that King Abdullah II, of Jordan listened to the people right away and dismissed his gov. making changes. His family has always been very well respected. The difference there and in Egypt is so glaring.
please tell Fuwad ajami he would make a great president!
This is a "CNN Revolution". AC and others (Piers Morgan too)did a great job relentlessly bringing the news to the world.
THANK YOU CNN AND AC
Congratulations to Egyptians everywhere on this extraordinary moment in yours and the world's history!!! Your courage, determination, and vision is to be admired and respected by people everywhere! I pray that your dream of a free, democratic, and prosperous country will be realized very soon! I visited Cairo about 13 years ago and was so impressed with the warmth and hospitality of your people. It was during a time when there had been attacks on tourists and our US State Dept was warning against visiting Egypt. We were received with open arms and never felt any threat from the people with whom we were able to meet. I hope to visit again now that you are a free people with so much to celebrate!
Dear Anderson, I cannot put in words, how I respect your journalism integrity, professionalism, your sincerity and great heart and love for the Egyptian Youth. You are indeed a hero for all Egyptians, including me an Egyptian in Canada...God Bless you
Dear Anderson, Ben, Ivan, Hala, Fred and
=all=! journalists, reporters, photographers, production, crew
This revolution has been televised, blogged, you tubed and tweeted.
I am in great admiration of the people on Tahrir square who risked their lives.
We will remember the lives lost for your revolution.
Have a great weekend everyone, thankful to be withn you all today.

The revolution in Egypt is unique and moving to watch–your coverage has been amazing! I hope you get some rest.
Thank you for all the coverage on egypt,because people like you egyptian people able to reach there dream ,thank you
So will the elections still wait till September to be held? Do I understand the military will be in charge till then?
Everyone have a good weekend, today here in California we celebrated Lioncon's Birthday.
Another hero from long ago who believed in the freedom of all people!
See you Monday:)
CNN and specially AC played an historical role in Egyptian Revolution. Their fair, intelligent and wise coverage of what was happening in Egypt showed to the World how media can support democracy by allowing freedom of speech for people and retaining violence by being an eyewitness of events.
CNN and AC could be candidate for Peace Nobel Prize for the role they played in Egypt Revolution.
Egyptian People are wonderful !
Thanks to you for showing it to the World
God bless you and your Nobel Prize President

The sun is rising soon here in Cairo.
Anderson great coverage on Egypt revaluation, now looking forward to see more coverage on getting democracy for the people of Egypt.
Great son’s of Ramses (pharaoh of Egypt) the Great, now work on creating democratic Egypt (^_^)
@Jana,Georgia, "So will the elections still wait till September to be held? Do I understand the military will be in charge till then?"
That is what I heard. I hope they will continue to support the demonstrators and allow democracy to rule.
Good night Jana.
"I read that Iranian opposition groups are calling for marches on Monday to show their support for the Egyptian demonstrators."
That's great! I hope that they are successful there too!
Congratulations to the people of Egypt! I have been watching the revolution unfold for 18 days, thanks to the courage of the CNN team who have brought us the coverage. I have been deeply touched by the bravery of the Egyptian people. The fact that this cruel regime was brought down nonviolently is astounding and testimony to the strength of the human spirit. I look forward to seeing the flourishing of the Egyptian society.
Thank you Anderson, Ben, Ivan, Nick, Hala, Arwa! You were amazing, risking your lives to bring us this story!
