    Give the Egyptian military some credit. After propping up Mubarak for decades, they know something about window dressing. Now the Muslim Brotherhood are "terrorists" again, just as in the good old Mubarak days.

      Mold the facts to fit the narrative. There's always some sort of fact pattern that fits whatever narrative you like. Morsi was simply a victim of a military that never wanted him to succeed. He had no other choice but to declare himself all-powerful. Not sure that worked out for him the way he had it planned.

      •  Do you have any basis to contest those facts? (0+ / 0-)

        The fact is the candidate picked by the military lost. The fact is that the Egyptian Supreme Court packed with Mubarak appointees decided to throw out Parliamentary elections because the Muslim Brotherhood won those, too.

        Context is important.
