Mubarak Will Meet Protesters Demands

From a victorious Associated Press:

Military says Mubarak will meet protesters demands

CAIRO – President Hosni Mubarak will meet the demands of protesters, military and ruling party officials said Thursday in the strongest indication yet that Egypt’s longtime president may be about to give up power.

The military’s supreme council was meeting Thursday, without the commander in chief Mubarak, and announced on state TV its "support of the legitimate demands of the people." A spokesman said the council was in permanent session "to explore "what measures and arrangements could be made to safeguard the nation, its achievements and the ambitions of its great people."

Gen. Hassan al-Roueini, military commander for the Cairo area, told thousands of protesters in central Tahrir Square, "All your demands will be met today." …

Military and ruling party officials say President Hosni Mubarak will speak to the nation soon and meet the demands of protesters. Protesters are insisting he step down immediately.

Military officials say the armed forces’ supreme council has been meeting all day long and will issue a communique shortly that they say will meet the protesters’ demands.

The ruling party chief, Hossan Badrawy, tells The Associated Press he expects Mubarak to address the nation and make a announcement that will satisfy their demands.

The real question is – how is our media going to be able to claim that this was all Mr. Obama’s doing now? But of course they will manage. ‘Where there’s a shill, there’s a way.’

Still, this could be a red letter day. But will it be the red of blood or roses?

    In a testy personal telephone call on Jan. 29, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah reportedly told President Obama not to humiliate Mubarak and warned that he would step in to bankroll Egypt if the U.S. withdrew its aid program, worth $1.5 billion annually.

    The White House declined to comment on the reports Wednesday, saying that the administration did not divulge what other leaders said to Obama.

    However, it later said that Obama had discussed Egypt during a phone call with King Abdullah on Wednesday,…
