The Arab Spring Gets a New Look in Egypt

Hosted by

After last year's revolution in Egypt, Generals from the ousted Mubarak regime disbanded the elected parliament and limited the powers of incoming President Mohammed Morsi. This weekend, Morsi struck back. He fired the top two generals and seized powers they had taken for themselves. The world is asking whether it's democracy in action, the establishment of a new and different dictatorship or a deal worked out behind closed doors. How is it related to the crisis in Sinai, where Islamic militants are making the border with Israel increasingly tense? What's the view of liberal reformers who don't want Hosni Mubarak replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood?
