Judge: Mubarak Complicit in Protester Killings -- News from Antiwar.com: "The Egyptian junta has released a report detailing the violent crackdown against protesters in February, leading up to the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak and his replacement with the current interim military government. The report says 846 civilians were killed in the crackdowns.

The report said that snipers and police shot protesters with live ammunition, and a disproportionate number were shot in the eyes. Hundreds of protesters also survived but lost their sight in the attacks.

Egyptian Judge Omar Marwan said President Mubarak was definitely complicit in the attacks, explaining that the use of live fire on protesters would’ve required his direct permission. Either that permission was given or Mubarak simply chose not to hold anyone accountable, but the attacks continued for days.

Mubarak was arrested late last week as protesters continued to demand he be held accountable for his crimes. The president’s sons were also arrested and are accused of being involved in efforts to syphon off government funds into their family’s personal accounts."

Some thirteen years after the event, the shadow of
the

9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center
in Manhattan and the Pentagon still darkens our
world. The legacy of that terrible day has impacted
not only our foreign policy, bequeathing to a new
generation an apparently

endless "war on terrorism," it also has led
directly to what is arguably the most

massive assault on our civil liberties since the
Alien and Sedition Acts. Getting all the information
about what happened that day – and why it happened –
