The Egyptian army has given the nation’s first democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi, an ultimatum: resolve differences with the opposition, or the military will step in and impose its own road map for the country. This comes after millions of Egyptians have taken to the streets demanding President Morsi step down. We discuss recent events in Egypt.

    Good segment. Informative. I am left wondering per my pet peeve on foreign affairs discussions, Is Telhami an American Exceptionalist? He doesn’t sound like one and he is a solid analyst but I have to wonder since he is a successful immigrant and he is affiliated with Brookings..
