Former US ally Hosni Mubarak was sentenced to life in prison for failing to stop the killing of protesters during last year’s uprising.

Barack called the former US ally Hosni Mubarak after pushing him from office in Egypt last year. Mubarak wouldn’t answer the phone. Today, Mubarak was sentenced to life in prison.

Anti-Mubarak protesters cheered when the verdict was announced.

The Muslim Brotherhood dominated government in Egypt sentenced former US ally Hosni Mubarak to life in prison.
The AP reported:

Hosni Mubarak was sentenced to life in prison Saturday for failing to stop the killing of protesters during the uprising that forced him from power last year. The ousted president and his sons were acquitted, however, of corruption charges in a mixed verdict that swiftly provoked a new wave of anger on Egypt’s streets.

Calls have gone out for a massive protest at Tahrir Square, the heart of the uprising, at 5 p.m.

After the sentencing, the 84-year old Mubarak suffered a “health crisis” while on a helicopter flight to a Cairo prison hospital, according to security officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. One state media report said it was a heart attack, but that could not immediately be confirmed.

The officials said Mubarak cried in protest and resisted leaving the helicopter that took him to a prison hospital for the first time since he was detained in April 2011. Mubarak stayed at a regular hospital in his favorite Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh from his arrest until his trial began in on Aug. 3. The officials said he insisted on the helicopter that he be flown to the military hospital on the eastern outskirts of Cairo where he has stayed during the trial.

Mubarak finally left the chopper and moved to the Torah prison hospital more than two hours after his helicopter landed there.

Earlier, Mubarak sat stone-faced and frowning in the courtroom’s metal defendants’ cage while judge Ahmed Rifaat read out the conviction and sentence against him, showing no emotion with his eyes concealed by dark sunglasses. His sons Gamal and Alaa looked nervous but also did not react to either the conviction of their father or their own acquittals.

Egypt elected a Muslim Brotherhood dominated parliament following the revolution last year.

    Who needs enemies when you have friends like SØBama.

    I have no love for the guy, but he kept faith with the Camp David Accord, didn’t threaten 7 million Christians with slavery or death, and treated the palistinians and other murdering jihadists like the scum they are.

    The obamster has sent the message to the world that freedom loving people everywhere are on their own. His only god is himself and his IQ seems to be less than his shoe size.

    Anyone notice a pattern here? Obama seems to have our friends/helpers confused with our enemies/terrorists. Over and over, that Won has turned our world upside down.

    All this is not a small thing. He just visited all the old 60’s resident enemy list to raise funds or other.

    This is not a small thing.

    the jusnta members in our govt are expecting perfection in all our allies. Total “student-union mentality. the worldand the leaders are not perfect. If our tab is 2 billion a year, we had some influence over/ on Mubarak. Our military trained with the egyptian military.
    Egypt was like a base for our troops. now we have nothing Seeing that the google guy was one instigator and Code Pink was there behind the scenes for some time, it looks like we, Obama junta operatives toppled Mub- our “ally”. Why was that so important to this claque?

  • owl

    Obama has made this country weaker than at any in my lifetime and I suspect, since the beginning.

    Mubarak kept faith with Israel — may God keep faith with him.

    Court: Marine can’t challenge Shariah

    [A federal appeals court says a Marine can’t challenge a U.S. government subsidy for a program that promotes Shariah, that radical Islamic law that includes chopping off hands for theft and beheading for leaving Islam.]

    Obama to sleep in his own bed

    President Obama is finally getting his wish: some peace and quiet at his old Chicago home. In the Windy City Friday for three fundraisers, Obama will spend the night at his South Side house. “It is good to be back home, I am sleeping in my bed tonight,” Obama told supporters at one fundraiser. “I’m going to go to my kitchen, I might cook something. It’s good to be home.”

    Wouldn’t it be nice if, he could stay there or our wish could come true and he could stay there after Jan. 20, 2013?

    All part of the plan. Any successful military coup has to either send the former leaders to jail to the graveyard. All that is left is for the installation of the puppet government of the Muslim Brotherhood to be the face of Egypt. With the military who has to remain faceless yet very powerful with interests in everything and the Muslim Brotherhood having now power over the military or its interests.

    Want to see what Egypt’s going to look like 20 years from now?

    Look no further than Iran.

    And people forget just how much war was going on in the Middle East during the 60s and early 70s.

    Well, they’re about to be reminded of it.
