Cairo 12/18/2011

Already in my short time here in Cairo, I've seen the difference between what the state media is reporting and what is happening on the ground in Tahrir as we speak.  Many Egyptians believe that the people that are in Tahrir Square now are agitators who are being paid by Hosni Mubarak and his cronies to disrupt order.  

I went down to Tahrir last night and was in the crowd as troops were firing live rounds at the front lines.  The government is also claiming that they are showing great restraint, even though ten Egyptians have reportedly been killed in the recent protests and more than 450 have been hospitalized.  

The bottom line is that genuine information, even within Egypt itself, is hard to come by.
