Tuesday  6 August  2013 / Hour 2, Block A: Eric Trager, Washington Institute, and Sam Tadros, Hudson Institute, in re: Bitterly anti-Ameican sentiment allowed [encouraged] by al-Sisi.   Is Egypt's future Qutb or Erdogan?  Too early to know.  Internal debate among Ikwan (internally), Salafis, and others to know, "Why are we in this predicament?" Military will probably use repressive rule, will delete MB, will maintain their interests (they own 30% of the national economy); the military will not be a smooth ride to democracy.
