Meet Omar Suleiman: Diplomat, Torturer, Renditionist, and Manager of the Billion Dollar Enterprise Known as Egypt Inc.
February 5, 2011
Omar Suleiman was born July 2, 1936. He is an Egyptian politician and military figure who was appointed Vice President of Egypt on January 29, 2011. Previously, he was Minister without Portfolio and Director of the Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate (EGID), the national intelligence agency, from 1993 to 2011. Due to the lack of an alternative acceptable to Hosni Mubarak, some have speculated that Suleiman will succeed Egypt Inc.
CEO Hosni Mubarak as President and CEO when he gets kicked upstairs and into his Chairman Emeritus position living lavishly on his reported $ 40 to $ 70 billion dollars absconded from his years of plunder whilst the people in the land of the Pharoahs remain in bondage. So get ready for Pharoah Suleiman. How much is Suleiman worth? What’s his game? What’s his plan to cash in? How will the CIA use his talents for future violations of human rights? So many questions!
Students, union activists and opposition bloggers within Egypt all remain opposed to Suleiman legitimately running the country without elections taking place. Human rights groups tie Suleiman’s career to a regime marked by widespread abuses and assert that Egyptians “see Suleiman as Mubarak II, especially after the lengthy interview he gave to state television Feb. 3 in which he accused the demonstrators in Tahrir Square of implementing foreign agendas.” In response, Suleiman has blamed “certain friendly nations who have television channels, they’re not friendly at all, who have intensified the youth against the nation and the state”
