I approach this week’s edition of The Party Line with a bit of trepidation–talking about Egypt in a segment I have to tape some hours before I post is risky business. No doubt “facts on the ground,” as they say, have changed since I recorded this. What I really want to address, though, is not so much what is happening in Tahrir Square, but what the hell is going on with the message uttered by US administration officials. That also might have changed since I made this video, but that is exactly what I want to talk about.
