I'm getting a lot of info from my sources that Islamist president Morsi is toast, and will either be toppled or resign within hours.
The semi-official Al-Ahram is already saying that the army will form a presidential council to run the country.If this goes down, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the armed forces commander appointed by Morsi last year will likely be Egypt's new strongman.
I'm also hearing that senior Muslim Brotherhood officials have been put under hpuse arrwest and even taken into custody by the army.
If things go down in this fashion, it means that (A) the Army called President Obama's bluff about cutting off aid if they pulled a coup (B)US influence on Egypt is negligible, thanks to our president.
Stay tuned..tomorrow should be interesting.
