Egypt’s Revolution After the Smoke Clears

 In times of crisis people strive for easy answers to complex situations. In Egypt this has resulted in absurdly digestible sound bites, where one side is labeled “good”(the Muslim Brotherhood), the other “bad” (the army), and the revolution as a whole is condemned as an atrocity. But the situation in Egypt is especially contradictory, and untying the social-political knots of the revolution requires avoiding pre-packaged catchphrases.

Years after his retirement, he spoke out candidly and ruefully of his highly decorated military service in a book entitled War is a Racket.
