Description or Abstract
On Police Day in 2011 something happened that no Egyptian, American, or Intelligence Agency around the world could have predicted. A revolution was born in Egypt, demanding the rights of the people after decades of oppression, police brutality, poverty, unemployment, and widespread corruption on every level of the state. This was nothing compared to the 1952 military coup that brought the country to where it is now, but rather a people’s revolution that had never happened before in the history of modern Egypt. A year and five months in, Egypt’s first free presidential elections ever have taken place.
