I was 14 when Mubarak became president - he was vice president to the assassinated Anwar Sadat - and 44 when Mubarak was forced to step down after revolution. I was a Reuters correspondent in Cairo from 1993-1998 and covered Mubarak extensively. Some memories to follow

9 years ago, we had a dream. May we never forget. May we never lose hope.

Resist and refuse words like “chaos” and “riot” about people demanding justice and an end to oppression. During one of my CNN appearances in the early days of revolution, I insisted they stop using “Chaos in Egypt” as a chyron. They changed it to “Uprising in Egypt.”

Fuck off you homophobic piece of shit. The revolution and anything good that brought will fail because of bigots and hateful shits like you. There is no freedom unless we are ALL free.

June 6 is the 10th anniversary of the beating to death of Khaled Said at the hands of Egyptian police. He was 28. His death sparked the creation of the famous FB page "We are all Khaled Said" and a revolution.

I wrote this in 2017 after Mubarak was acquitted in a retrial for the killing of some 900 people in the 11 days of . Sisi and other senior security personnel have yet to be held accountable for killing almost 1000 in Aug 2013.

I’m pretty sure when Mubarak deployed the military against protestors in Tahrir Square during revolution, the NYT reported on it in a critical way. And here is that same NYT publishing a senator supporting Trump’s call to deploy the military. Dangerous and shameful
