I can't help but wonder..

Is this part of a price the US had to pay in order for the more or less peacefull recent anti-Mubarak protests (With the exception of Alaa, Mohamed, and Mostafa getting into scuffles and getting their cameras taken) to take place without major incidents? If that's not it, what kind of deal was cut here? Just the usual arms dealing? If that's the case, is this a price Egypt had to pay to keep the US placated and ease the pressure? I realize i am reaching into my inner-conspiracy theorist, but the timing of it all, one week after Rice's visit, doesn't help but make me slightly paranoid here!

I was thinking more like "money". You know, it may be the reverse now. Mubarek couldn't afford the money to be gone. Maybe it was more like "you are making it very difficult for us. by the way, we'll be talking to congress in the near future about Egypts economic aid package. What message do you think I should pass along to congress?"
