Sisi says the army attempted to
have a national reconciliation that
included the presidency. But that
the army felt the people were
calling for help. He insists the
army does not seek to rule but to
reset the national course.
Morsi is out. Sisi announces a
transitional government and new
presidential elections.
Sisi says the constitution has been
suspended and a transition
government will run the country
with the support of the military
until new elections can be held.

El-Yazal as saying that the
anticipated army statement on a
political "road map" is being "fine-
tuned." Yazal says the statement
will be made with the presence of

US state department spokeswoman
Jen Psaki says in her daily briefing
that the US is very concerned
about conditions on the ground in
Egypt and that Morsi "must do
more to be responsive to concerns
of the Egyptian people."
"Democracy is not just about being
elected through the ballot box," she
says. "It's also about allowing the
voices in your country to be
heard."
Asked about animosity in the street
directed at Ambassador Anne
Patterson and the United States,
Psaki says "we have been clear in
not taking sides, and specifically
supporting the right of the
opposition protests."
Patterson's long meeting with
Brotherhood leader Khairat al-
Shater in his office before the
massive June 30 rallies has fed
perceptions of US support for the
Morsi presidency. On the other
hand the Pentagon announced
today that secretary Hagel has
been repeatedly in touch with
General Sisi in the last week.

Egypt, taking their destiny in their own hands. Strong willed people. When will Nigeria be able to organize something like this? ASUP and ASUU are on strike in Nigeria, yet, the govt. is silent because their children schools abroad. When can we take on our own govt. to task?

Is he not the same man that tried to sack the military chief some months back? Mtcheew, butterfly that thinks he is a bird.

This isn't a coup because Morsi and his cronies in government were warned to address the demands of the protesting Egyptians or risk being ousted. The powerful Egyptian military has once again demonstrated their unalloyed patriotism for their nation.
