Robert H Reid, of the Associated Press has written about Egypt's Mubarak: war hero... to convict
According to Reid:
"A former pilot and air force commander ...Mubarak took tentative steps toward democratic reform early in his presidency..."
Joel Carillet. The CIA and Mossad did not like Mubarak; the CIA and Mossad prefer the rulers of Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
"Mubarak disapproved of the 2003 U.S. invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein of Iraq..."
"Mubarak's own view of himself (was) as someone who is tough but fair, who ensures the basic needs of his people," (according to a leaked US embassy cable)...
"Mubarak kept Egypt free of the grip of Islamic extremism...
"He engineered Egypt's return to the Arab fold after nearly a decade in the cold over its 1979 peace treaty with Israel (the work of Sadat).
"Early on, Mubarak crushed an insurgency by Muslim extremists, whose ranks had produced Sadat's assassins and some future al-Qaida leaders...
(These extremists reportedly work for the CIA - Aangirfan))
According to Egypt's top man, Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, Mubarak did not order the army to fire on demonstrators. Egypt's ruler denies army told to shoot protesters. aangirfan: THE REAL TERRORISTS IN EGYPT, TUNISIA, LIBYA ...
"Mubarak earned nationwide acclaim as commander of the air force during the 1973 Middle East war - a conflict which many Egyptians see as a victory...
"Mubarak made popular moves that held up promise of a more open society, including freeing 1,500 politicians, journalists and clerics jailed during Sadat's last months in office...
"Egypt's influence in the Middle East ... waned as the militant group Hamas ... gained momentum and followers...
(Reportedly, Hamas was set up with help from Israel - Aangirfan)
"The oil-rich countries of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates seized the mantle of leadership regional leadership. The growing profile of Turkey, a democracy led by an Islam-inspired government, also chipped away at Egypt's heavyweight stature in the region...

Mubarak has many supporters.
The turnout in the first round of voting in the presidential election in Egypt was only 41%.
(Financial Times, 26 May 2012)
In other words, the majority of Egyptians have given a thumbs down to the Arab Spring in Egypt.
So, the world had to be tricked into believing that Mubarak was not good for the Egyptian economy and that all the Egyptians wanted him out.
CIA assets within the Egytian government could be used to promote torture and violence in order to discredit the regime.
11. Egypt gets relatively little in foreign aid.
Repayments of principal exceed disbursements. Egypt’s net outflows to bilateral sources reached 960 million dollars in 2008, topping its 118 million net inflows from multilateral sources.)
The Father of the Egytian Revolution is a friend of the CIA called Gene Sharp.
According to Thierry Meyssan (The Albert Einstein Institution: the CIA.):
Gene Sharp "helped NATO and then the CIA train the leaders of the soft coups of the last 15 years".
Sharp's Albert Einstein Institution plans coups.
Sharp has links to the 'stay-behind groups' associated with Operation Gladio.
Sharp trained dissident groups within the PLO.
Sharp helped break up Yugoslavia. (The Albert Einstein Institution.)
In The Scotsman, on 18 February 2011, Sheryl Gay Stolberg (a good Scottish name) wrote about "Gene Sharp, the American whose ideas defeat dictators".
From this we learn:
1. Gene Sharp, aged 83, has written "From Dictatorship to Democracy", a guide to toppling autocrats.
This guide is said to have inspired dissidents in Bosnia, Tunisia and Egypt.
2. The International Centre on Non-violent Conflict, which trains activists, slipped into Cairo several years ago to conduct a workshop.It uses Sharp's list of tactics that range from hunger strikes to "protest disrobing" to "disclosing identities of secret agents".
3. Dalia Ziada, an Egyptian blogger and activist attended the workshop and later organised similar sessions on her own.
She said trainees were active in both the Tunisia and Egypt revolts.
4. Peter Ackerman, a former student of Mr Sharp founded the non-violence centre and ran the Cairo workshop.

5. The Muslim Brotherhood had Sharp's From Dictatorship to Democracy posted on its website.
6. In 2007, Chávez of Venezuela denounced Gene Sharp.
Officials in Burma, according to Wikileaks, accused Sharp of being part of a conspiracy to set off demonstrations intended "to bring down the government".
7. In 1989, Sharp flew to China to witness the uprising inTiananmen Square.
In the early 1990s, he was in a rebel camp in Burma at the invitation of Robert Helvey, a retired US Army colonel who advised the opposition there.
8. Sharp has been seen as a sort of Lawrence of Arabia, stirring up Arab revolts.
This displeases As'ad AbuKhalil, the Lebanese political scientist and founder of the Angry Arab News Service blog.
Mubarak in China.
Israel and Mossad wanted Mubarak to be toppled.
Under Mubarak, Egypt was too strong for Israel to attack.
Israel would like Egypt to be like Lebanon?
In 1948 Israel was at war with Egypt
In 1956: Israel tried to seize the Suez Canal and topple Nasser's regime in Egypt. Israel hoped it might also at the same time grab the West Bank, parts of the Sinai, and parts of Lebanon. (The myth of Israel's strategic genius. )
In 1967: Israel seized the Sinai in Egypt, as well as the West Bank, Golan Heights and Gaza Strip. (The myth of Israel's strategic genius.)
In 1973 Israel was at war with Egypt.
In 1981 President Mubarak came to power and he "has effectively boycotted Israel.
"Egypt's state-controlled newspapers continued to demonize Israel.
"All ties on the bilateral level between Egypt and Israel have been frozen including tourism, commerce, and industry." (Egypt and Israel: A Reversible Peace :: Middle East Quarterly)
Under Mubarak, Egypt became stronger economically and militarily; too strong for Israel to attack.
In 1991, the CIA's Muslim Brotherhood began pressing more strongly for a strict Islamic state.
In 1999, Mubarak visited China.
He signed a joint communique with Chinese President Jiang Zeming on establishing a strategic and cooperative relationship between Egypt and China.
In 2002: Mubarak denounced Israel
Mubarak made a televised speech bitterly condemning Israel and accusing it of using state terrorism to crush the Palestinians.
Mubarak said that following their barbaric and systematic aggression, the Israelis were in the process of destroying evidence of the horrendous crimes perpetrated under the pretext of fighting terrorism.
In 2003: Mubarak opposed the Iraq invasion.
In 2003: Israel protested Egypt's use of unmanned aerial vehicles, drones, to spy on Israeli military facilities.
Israel wants the Sinai?
In January 2011, we read that Egypt's Irrigation Minister has dismissed the possibility that Egypt would supply Israel with water from the Nile. (Egypt and Israel, a souring relationship?)
In January 2011: Mubarak warned Israel against a new Gaza war Israel News.Net)
You are unlike to find any of the above at 'whatreallyhappened.com', which at one time supported Obama, and which has supported the CIA's people power in Egypt.
