Representative Sample: The administration is torn between two competing visions put forward by the foreign policy establishment in Washington of what the US should do and say about the crisis in Egypt, and as is typical, they have chosen to split the difference.
2. "EGYPT: Mubarak's Survival Strategy" But will it work?
