Egyptian protests topple dictatorship

The world’s major news wires are now reporting that Egyptian President Hasni Mubarak has stepped down. The announcement was made in a speech by Vice President Omar Suleiman. Mubarak ceded power to the military, most of whose officers have been trained in the U.S., and which as recently as yesterday announced it would protect the security of the country until political elections are held in the next several months.

Congratulations to the people of Egypt, who are proving once again that the human spirit cannot be shackled!
