Blunt On Egypt

Senator Roy Blunt serves on the Intelligence Committee and has been meeting with ambasadors from Egypt and several other mid-east countries the last few days. Blunt says traditionally authoritarian leaders in the middle east are now feeling the push for Democracy but that has to be balanced with security. Blunt says immediate elections in Egypt could be harmful. He's leaning toward participation by the public and candidates so they accept the results when the election does happen.
