Did the U.S. Plan Egypt? Wikileaks Cables say so
“The U.S. government had been planning to topple the Egyptian president for the past three years _ that is, according to diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks,” RT reported Saturday.
The Jerusalem Post said a 2008 cable revealed the American plans. “The cable outlines how the State Department helped an Egyptian pro-democracy activist attend a “Youth Movements Summit’ in New York and how the unnamed activist presented an ‘unwritten plan’ for democratic transition in 2011.’” The cables also indicated the U.S. had applied pressure to have three dissidents associated with the pro-democracy activist released from prison. The Post published the cable on its Website.
