Thank you Mona for appearing on CNN and describing some of the atrocities perpetrated by the Egyptian police and army. What happened to her awful. Having said that, I wish she went one step further and used that opportunity to remind unwitting CNN spectators how much support their government and tax money is directly contributing to this violence. The anchor ended up framing this incident as an attack committed by Arab thugs, which really fits in with CNN's narrative.
