US Defense Secretary, Robert Gates, is racing to Cairo on orders from US President, Barrack Obama to handle the fall out and demise of Egyptian military's junta rule, and the exposure of information from "the secret files on every political and military leader in the country, confidential information once accessible only to ex-intelligence minister Gen.

From previous WL Coverage:

So who is former intelligence minister Omar Suleiman? Jane Mayer asks the question in herarticle in the New Yorker, and answers it with information from her book The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How the War on Terror Turned Into a War on American Ideals.

"Since 1993 Suleiman has headed the feared Egyptian general intelligence service. In that capacity, he was the C.I.A.'s point man in Egypt for renditions--the covert program in which the C.I.A. snatched terror suspects from around the world and returned them to Egypt and elsewhere for interrogation, often under brutal circumstances.".

Revelations also include a sex tape of Kuwait Royal Princess with a businessman in Alexandria from the #AmnDawla twitter feed.
