Anderson's interview with Khalid Abdalla, Egyptian Activist
Today, a revolution is what we witnessed. A long ruling dictator driven from power, and a long oppressed people celebrating, still in the streets, in that square, waving their country's flags,honking horns, tasting freedom for the first time. The Egyptian people are demanding democracy whether they get it, they are demanding it. Right now, today, old Egypt is dead, a new Egypt is born. ~ Anderson Cooper
