US, Regional Perspectives on Egypt's Upheaval

Hosted by

Hours after the announcement that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak had turned over power to the country's military, the party was still going on. But many questions remain. Can the military be trusted to institute democracy? What will be the role of the US? What's the reaction in the rest of the Arab world, where dictatorships still hold power? We hear what the Obama Administration says the US will expect from Egypt's interim government and get perspective on what's next for Egypt and the region.
