Mubarak Still in Charge?

by Raymond Ibrahim

While the media has eagerly accepted the “happy ending” of Hosni Mubarak’s abdication — after all, the uprisings were dragging on and the media needed a quick denouement so it could return to Lady Gaga — an increasing number of Egyptians are convinced that he never abdicated and is still in charge of the military he bred for over 30 years, only behind the scenes. 

I know — “conspiracy theory”!
