    confirmation.

    the most reelable unconfirmed source I have is an alexandria arabic forum in which it is claimed that naval officers announced this to the crowd outside the regional palace

    •  Confirmation in form of Supreme Council going on (1+ / 0-)

      ...national TV stating the same might would be confirmation, IMHO; otherwise, the rumors continue to abound, as they did yesterday--and then Mubarak's punk'd speech contradicted earlier reports and the speech by the military.  So--until they come out and overtly say something, I'm not buying it.  

      As for Mubarak's going to his second home outside Egypt, he's done so for years, going back & forth and still remaining in the Presidency.  As long as he's in the country, he can still return to Cairo. So the significance of that move isn't yet clear either.
