UM: Egypt

USA Today reports on how Egyptian students studying in the U.S. are reacting to news of unrest in their home country. The article quotes Mohamed Mattar, a UM mechanical engineering student: “I started thinking about what President Obama said in Cairo at the start of his presidency. I was so happy to see him come to my country and make a speech. He was promoting that people should stand up for their rights. Right now, we’re not hearing that from him anymore. Where is all that talk about people being free, and this is what the United States stands for?” [Source]
