What does everyone think of this?

Im a little suspicious of the story To be honest, But its a nice little News story to Think upon


Margaret Scobey, the US Ambassador in Cairo, said in the memo to the US Secretary of State in Washington D.C. that she questioned the likelihood that such an action would happen.

Other cables revealed, however, the US diplomats had sought out the opposition groups, one of whose members attended a youth summit in Washington organized by the State Department.

This week's protests in Egypt were instigated by a group of young, educated Egyptians known as the "April 6 youth movement," which has a presence on the social network site Facebook.

The Scobey memo was labeled "April 6 activist on his US visit and regime change in Egypt."

Sorry but I think this cable is a fake. I have all the cables downloaded and I cannot find any of the phrases in a search of all cables.

I wrote a program to download all the cables and it has a search function so this is not just me not spotting something.
