Commentators are focusing on one word of that paragraph – the word “now” and are paraphrasing it to say that President Obama is asking for President Mubarak to go NOW. They are leaving out the word “begin”. Watch for it – I am sure you will hear it a few more times tonight.

The complete text of President Obama’s speech is here. Watch what is being orchestrated by the media. But why? For ratings? To drive stock markets in the Middle East down? Would this help the US or western stock markets? I don’t know – I am just asking who will benefit if chaos ensues in the middle east?
