Obama: History is unfolding in Egypt
Politico, February 10, 2011
Amid reports that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will resign when he speaks on state television later Thursday, President Barack Obama addressed the developing situation, saying, “We are witnessing history unfold.”

Speaking in Michigan Thursday afternoon, Obama revealed no new details about the apparent transition of power, saying only that the White House is “following events in Egypt very closely” and vowing that “America will continue to do everything we can to support an orderly and genuine transition to democracy in Egypt.”

Military officials in Egypt have told several media outlets that they have taken power and that Mubarak will indeed announce he is stepping down. The military has been meeting throughout the day Thursday without the president in the room — a sign that he is on the way out.
