Egyptians stormed the brutal Mukhabarat – State Security Services used by Mubarak to cement his reign. Protesters stormed the agency’s main headquarters in Cairo, ransacking offices and searching for evidence of Mubarak’s wrongdoing among thousands of classified documents.
The feared Mukhabarat or State Security Services were responsible for some of the worst human rights abuses during Mubrarak’s 30-year rule.
The following are just some of the images and videos that were posted to social networks in real time by Egyptians as they explored the building. (Images via @yasserseif)
That should give you an idea why the people throughout the Middle East are fighting to liberate themselves from despotic regimes that have been aided and abetted by western governments….never forget that fact.
