"THE STORY OF THE EGYPTIAN REVOLUTION"

The story comes from American Thinker, and is told by someone on the ground in Egypt. Focused mainly on how and what has happened in the past week, it also points out the personal struggle for survival you don't often see in news coverage.

Of particular interest for me, is the role of social media. When you fully understand the power of this new tool and how it was used, it becomes clear why the Egyptian government reached for the Internet "kill switch." More importantly, it becomes clear why Obama wants the same capability at his fingertips.
