Whenever hear Egy MOI operating solo I wonder what was the chain of command+whether action coordinated. Were mil police involved in Tahrir?
Michael Hanna @mwhanna1
Egypt is woefully prepared for elections that are due in 9 days. And to think that MOI is essentially tasked with administering them.

Back to old ways MT @Repent11: Noor Salafi Party: so-called protesters bunch of hash had heroin smokers attacking security forces red line

@Bassem_Sabry If reliable, that's a really serious development.
Michael Hanna @mwhanna1
@Bassem_Sabry do you know if the military police have been involved in the crackdown today?
Michael Hanna @mwhanna1
I think its possible that MOI has been acting unilaterally. Don't believe deteriorating security+delayed elections are something SCAF want

Return to normalcy in #Tahrir. >500 injured, and what lesson learned? Aggressive riot police action is provocative.
Elijah Zarwan @elijahzarwan
@bungdan as usual, conspiracy theories abound, but in totally different direction
Elijah Zarwan @elijahzarwan
The women of downtown were at the forefront of fighting in some places in and around #Tahrir today.
Michael Hanna @mwhanna1
@elijahzarwan The absence of military police seems suspicious
Elijah Zarwan @elijahzarwan
RT @AlHofheinz: @acarvin @rehab_elbakry yes, water is cut around Tahrir. Has been cut in Garden City since around noon.
Elijah Zarwan @elijahzarwan
@mwhanna1 Why? Of course they don't want to do that dirty work, and rightly so.
Michael Hanna @mwhanna1
@elijahzarwan Their total absence all day raises a question regarding coordination or lack thereof
Michael Hanna @mwhanna1
@elijahzarwan Unless, of course, the SCAF simply misjudged the possible reaction.
Elijah Zarwan @elijahzarwan
@mwhanna1 Think I see where you're going, and, yes, that was a topic of conversation here tonight.
Michael Hanna @mwhanna1
@elijahzarwan I have a basic question as to who gives orders/directives to MOI and who exercises actual control of Amn al Markazy
Elijah Zarwan @elijahzarwan
@arabist @mwhanna1 @evanchill @joshuahersh i assume no csf order to clear by force w/o scaf approval.
Elijah Zarwan @elijahzarwan
Renewed clashes in area between MOI, Talaat Harb, #Tahrir.
Michael Hanna @mwhanna1
@elijahzarwan @arabist @evanchill @joshuahersh But that begs ? of what SCAF was after deploying CSF at a critical moment as elections near
Elijah Zarwan @elijahzarwan
@mwhanna1 @arabist @evanchill @joshuahersh 1 obv. conspiracy-theory line of speculation presents self. next few days may tell
Elijah Zarwan @elijahzarwan
@stevenacook @mwhanna1 @Daloosh how unpatriotic. we all know al-gaish weh al-shaab weh al-shorta eid wahda.
