Mubarak: I Can’t Resign Because If Do There Will Be Chaos
After two days of staying quiet while his country slowly bled, Hosni Mubarak finally spoke today to ABC’s Christiane Amanpour:
I’ve just left the presidential palace in Cairo where I met for about 30 minutes with President Hosni Mubarak.
He told me that he is troubled by the violence we have seen in Tahrir Square over the last few days but that his government is not responsible for it. Instead, he blamed the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned political party here in Egypt.
He said he’s fed up with being president and would like to leave office now, but cannot, he says, for fear that the country would sink into chaos.
One has to wonder what he thinks is going on right now, because it certainly isn’t stability.
