Egyptian journalist Ashraf Khalil joins me this week on Abu Aardvark’s Middle East Channel Editor’s Video Blog to discuss his new book Liberation Square and the state of the Egyptian revolution. Tune in to see us talk about how Egypt has changed in the year since the fall of Hosni Mubarak and the prospects for Egyptian protestors. And don’t miss the special bonus appearance of a certain psychedelic former Arab leader!
