Antiwar Radio: Ahmed al-Assy

Ahmed al-Assy, an Egyptian-American living in Egypt and a participant in the Tahrir Square protests, discusses how exiled president Hosni Mubarak may still be calling the shots in Egypt; the oligarchy-friendly Egyptian constitution that hinders democratic reforms; the difference between the regular army and the security forces within the Ministry of Interior; protesters in Tahrir Square and other areas, staying for the duration; and the Egyptian activists trying to keep the Gaza border crossing permanently open.
