Obama Condemns Egyptian Violence

As thousands of protesters remain in the streets of Cairo and other Egyptian cities demanding the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak, President Obama spoke out on the situation today, declaring that he will "continue to be crystal clear that we oppose violence as a response to this crisis."

The standoff in Cairo remains as volatile as ever, as Mubarak refuses to leave office before his term expires in September. The administration is trying to find a way to ease the octogenarian out of power, but so far he's sticking to his plan to stay in office.

Obama made his comments at a joint press availability with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who is visiting Washington. The president said, "We are sending a strong and unequivocal message: Attacks on reporters are unacceptable. Attacks on human-rights workers are unacceptable. Attacks on nonviolent protestors are unacceptable."

 

Obama said he wanted to see "this moment of turmoil turn into a moment of opportunity."
