Two stories on Egypt that only solidify the US reputation as the protector of human rights in the Arab world

Story I:  "Egyptian security forces have detained nearly 10,000 people suspected of being militants, rioters and others wanted in violent attacks over the past 12 months in a crackdown that a senior Interior Ministry official said Saturday was aimed at those trying to curtail Egypt’s development."

Story II: " Egypt received 10 Apache helicopters from the United States in the past week, security officials said Saturday, a sign that tensions between the longtime allies are easing as they confront Islamist extremism across the region."  Draw your own conclusions.
