Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations, spoke to the CBS Early Show this morning about the state of affairs in Egypt.
- 0:15 Mubarak would like to stay on, but he won’t be able to. The army is sending a signal, by not shooting people, that it doesn’t want to tie itself to Mubarak.
- 1:05 I think Mubarak gets that he can’t hang on. Question of when, not if.
- 1:30 Religious forces have had little to do with this. But as things unravel, the opportunity for groups like the Muslim Brotherhood to exploit the situation grow.
- 2:30 After Mubarak goes is when the problem really begins.
- 2:50 Jordan needs to watch. Oil rich kingdoms are probably safe. Arab television and the internet are a powerful social force.
