A president Mohamed -- in the radical rain on the Muslim Brotherhood so what sort of blow is this to the Islamist movement and what kind of leader Kenny Egypt expect next -- -- It's a national security analyst at the clarion project he joins us now right good to see you a -- -- of our who's in power now under the military moved in.
We have this -- CC in power also who's really.
Controlling the government there will interim president is that former top judge that's -- the military decided they want to begin term -- to make it clear that this isn't about the military taking over for themselves if you puppet.
Basically because the military's going to be running the show they're going to be the ones that are making sure the country secure and stable and sticking together -- we know about this guy here we're looking at a monitor screens -- general so he is tied directly to the military.
Is he it is it did what he was also -- by.
-- -- He was and I physically or the same.
Well he's going to be an Islamist himself but the military is bigger than just one person suggests he was chosen by Mohamed -- to replace -- secular general.
But it was clear to the military which is largely secular that they had to step in because there is going to need.
Bloody battles on the streets between the pro Islamist forces and the anti Islamist forces and that's what compelled him to act we know that we know the tight control we know the tight relationship that Mubarak had with the military.
We know that their relationship that -- has with the military we know the relationship that now CC has with the military.
Other protesters happy they're celebrating fireworks going off here on your screen of a happy that the military is once again back in here.
Oh absolutely they explicitly asked the military to do that so this is being called a -- But when you say -- that image that comes to mind is of the Milton -- in power for itself.
That's not what happened you had a massive revolution happening in Egypt with millions of -- on the street far bigger crowds then were protesting Mubarak.
And they said to the military please step in and solve this crisis in the military did it.
Do we expected to be different this time the last time we had a constitution that was rushed through -- it was slip shot into it now corsets that constitution is suspended.
-- -- be thrown out completely how will this be different.
The constitution is suspended but the military says that they're going to transition to a democratic process have constitutional amendments and I do think it's going to be different and that's because.
The ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood has just suffered its biggest -- since its founding in 1928.
Would it have been better if more -- stayed in power.
Disbanded his cabinet there are good disbanded the government brought in an entirely new government and let the democratic process play out.
No because no Egyptian really trust Mohamed -- they just want him out because they saw that he is very slick the Muslim Brotherhood is very deceptive.
And that their goal is to institute Sharia law and they don't want that and they felt excluded the Christians the secularist.
And at one point I would make is that we have unfortunately alienated the moderate forces on the ground in Egypt right now because when we reached out to the Muslim Brotherhood and what we -- turn to our side that inevitably -- and then the secular forces are saying why is the United States sticking by the side of the Muslim Brotherhood a great question going forward -- tomorrow's -- -- national security analyst we appreciate you joining us this morning thank you.
Happy Independence Day.
