What do people think of the comments made by some of our US elected officials regarding possible "free and fair" elections in Egypt? Many politicians here rail against domestic US policies they consider undemocratic, and support foreign policies that purport to promote democracy in selected nations. Have others noticed that many of these same US officials are not speaking up for democracy in the Egyptian case and are openly expressing concern about who the Egyptian electorate would vote in? Some are even saying the US needs to act to guard against an election result in Egypt that would be unfavorable to the US. I think this hypocracy needs some attention.
