Book of the Week: Banned by Mubarak regime

My book of the week was published three years ago, but - in a strikingly prescient way - foretold the January revolution here.

It's called "Inside Egypt: The Land of the Pharoahs on the Brink of a Revolution" and it was written by John R. Bradley.

The book was banned by the Mubarak's regime - and understandably so!  If you want to understand how Egypt got to this crossroads, read this book.

    This book was never banned by the Mubarak regime – it was available at several English language bookstores in Cairo since shortly after its publication. The author merely made the claim to sell more copies. Incidentally, it's a droll read of sensationalized ideas, with analysis patched from sensationalized press clippings. Not much new there.

    Fareed Zakaria – pimping for Obama and Soros. A plant. A stooge. Bought and paid for by The One and Spooky Dude. This explains the fawning interview he had with his paymaster, George Soros.

    What is the name of the book (fiction) about a CIA mission gone awry in Pakistan? The show aired this Sunday morning.
