Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today on Egypt:
I think it is important to support the transition process announced by the Egyptian government, actually headed by now vice-president Omar Suleiman.
There are many possible effects of such a statement, all of them bad. If the Suleiman transition process WAS something Egyptian-led and good, Clinton has now discredited him as a stooge of the US Department of State. If the Suleiman process was NOT so good, then US credibility in favor of autonomous democratic freedom sinks even lower (if that's still even possible).
Taking into account that Clinton also whiffed on previous statements on democracy in Egypt, what if she and every other US government official just go completely silent, please?
