RTAmerica: US blindsided by Egypt unrest

RTAmerica | January 28, 2011 

Protests inspired by the revolt in Tunisia have dominoed along Egypt, Yemen and Algeria with citizens calling for governmental change. 

What will this mean for US involvement in the region? 

Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen explained Egypt is an important ally of the US and receives more US foreign aid than any other country in the region. 

The US they never thought that Mubarak was going to be toppled from power. Especially since US Vice President Joe Biden has continually referred to him as a close ally and refused to call him a dictator.
