Ex-Egypt Minister’s Trial Resumes Sept. 5

CAIRO, Aug. 14 (UPI) — The trial of Egypt’s former interior minister was continued until Sept. 5 following a heated session Sunday, the presiding judge ordered.

Lawyers for more than 800 people killed in this year’s popular revolt are calling for the proceedings against Habib Al Adly and six of his aides to be combined with the trial of former President Hosni Mubarak. Mubarak’s trial resumes Monday.

Gulf News said Sunday’s hearing was called off after at least three arguments between the lawyers and presiding judge Ahmed Refaat.

Refaat said the entire cadre of attorneys would be allowed to attend the Sept. 5 session without one of the special passes that some attorneys complained were difficult to obtain.

    This trial will probably double as a way for our many internaional enemies to put America’s foreign policy on trial. In our case, we’ve had a long string of prezzes who rely on advisors for ideas on how to formulate foreign policy. It’s a long, sad tale. Like it or not, Mubarak is on his own.
    To me, our record on picking foreign “friends” is so bad that we probably couldn’t have done any worse if we’d picked someone off a city street and installed him/her as the new dictator. That doesn’t take talent. It just takes a stupid prez.
    We’d be better off without relying so much on ‘advisors’ who tend to be agents for groups bent on world domination. A president is supposed to be a LEADER, and not a tool for a group that can use a prez like a monkey on a leash.
