Egypt Failure Update: Riots in Tahrir Square

This is what Democracy looks like. Gunfire rings out it Cairo’s Tahrir Square as protesters joined with Army officers take to the streets. Twitter user ahmedmorsy07 has been documenting the action along with Youtube user Kikhote

Both have been instrumental in documenting the chaos in real time. Here is video from Tahrir Square this morning with machine gun fire (caution-some images may be disturbing)

Special thanks to the courageous participants who have risked their personal safety to document these new developments

Update: NY Times finally caught up on this. Good job backbenchers-only a few hours late to the party. Fashionably late right?
