US has nothing to offer Egyptians: Lawrence Freeman

Published on Jul 16, 2012 by PressTVGlobalNews
Egyptians have welcomed US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by throwing tomatoes and holding protests as they view her visit an example of Washington’s meddling in the country’s internal affairs.

Washington threw its weight behind the Hosni Mubarak regime for over three decades but now claims to support Egypt’s transition to democracy.

Clinton has met with Egypt’s newly-elected President Mohamed Morsi at the presidential palace. She met with Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi, the head of the military, and urged him to support a transition to civilian rule on Sunday.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Lawrence Freeman, Executive Intelligence Review, from Washington, to further discuss the issue.

    Freeman’s analysis is not worth a frozen onion. It is laughable for him to say that “the US does not seem to have any clear idea how to help the Egyptian people.” When was that EVER the case with any country the US controlled?
    Freeman also totally avoids pronouncing even the word “Israel” as if the ONLY reason HC went to Egypt was not to tell the military they can kiss the aid bye-bye if there is any talk of revising/breaking the agreement with Israel.
    Why does presstv even interview this guy?

    it’s not easy to make a logical, coherent picture out of the mass of propaganda produced by the jewish run media. an accurate picture is out altogether. i one ever noticed, mainstream analysis never makes any logical sense. it’s rubbish in-rubbish out.
