President Obama Addresses Violent Protest Happening in Egypt

Protesters hit the streets in Egypt yesterday. They are angry and protesting the authoritarian leadership of their President, Hosni Mubarak. In Egypt, the government controls everything! The media- internet, television, mobile access- all of it is controlled by their leadership. PLEASE watch the video after the jump!

The big surprise here is that, with a revolt such as this one, the media for once is sort of rebelling themselves, and according to CNN, they are actually covering these protests for what they are instead of reporting them as terroristic exercises! As of right now the death toll has reached the 30s since yesterday.

CNN also reported that the media covering the protests as they are and the President deploying the army to clear the streets are tell tell signs that the people just may be winning this one. Im praying for the unrest happening there. Below are CNN's reports on whats happening as well as President Obama's address regarding the situation.
