Regarding our week-long rush-hour

Question: You know why Mubarak never opens a project, visits a ministry, doesn't go anywhere or do anything on Fridays? Answer: Because Friday is the only day when the streets of Cairo are empty from the morning to the afternoon, thus allowing anyone attempting an assassination a chance to run away with their car afterwards. This isn't the case during any other day of the week, where there is a contention of traffic everywhere and it takes you at least an hour to go for a 15 minute drive. That's why he insists on going places on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, wendsday and Thursday during the worst hours of traffic; where would a potential assassin run away to when all the streets are packed? Ohh, the things you learn from the President's security detail people!

That sounds a bit made up if you ask me, anyways, friday is a holiday, what would make them decide to hold an opening on a holiday? not convinced!

nononono wrong, this explanation doesn't pass occam's razor.

here is the simpler an correcter explanation.

on friday there is no traffic so his security people won't turn anyone's life to hell by blocking streets and abusing pedestrians, since turning people's life to hell is part of his mandate and since he is such a dedicated president he only goes out when the traffic is at it's peak and يطلع ميتين أبو اللي خلفونا

want proof? cheney canceled his trip but they turned streets upside down anyways.
