Things developed rapidly when the snipers at the roof of state security began to target the protesters , not less than three were badly injured including an activist called Hassan Mustafa who got shot in his stomach. Hassan Mustafa has survived thank God but his condition is critical , he needs your prayers. Also photographer and activist Abdullah Esmat was injured in his shoulder and transfered to hospital.
The army came when the snipers began to attack the people and smoke began to appear from the building itself . People knew that the SS officers were still destroying important documents.
Now from what I understand the army was neutral when it came but sooner the SS officers and thugs began to throw Molotov cocktails again then came the snipers who united the army and people again together . The turning moment came when the army got an order to control the building and arrest the officers.
Despite the oceans of shredded papers our friends have found at the HQ , they found very important files in the HQ.
I wonder what files the State security officers have actually destroyed. These are the files our tweep friends told us about :
Bombing the two Saints Church “According to those who read , it actually incriminates the MOI in bombing the church.
Hosni Mubarak and Suzanne Mubarak !! “Yes they were following their moves !! It makes you wonder about their loyalty. Our friends spoke about a report covering the Addis Baba assassination attempt in 1996.
Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei
Al Jazeera TV host Ahmed Mansour
Late Khaled Said !!
Members of Muslim brotherhood like Mohamed Habib
Members of 6th April like Ahmed Maher ‘it included details about their family members even babies !”
Members of socialist movements
Religious conservative “allegedly full floor dedicated to them”
The Egyptian New night talk shows “Including transcripts for the episodes and the details of the callers”
A whole file with the Yahoo emails that have been monitored.
Files about CIA , FBI, Iraq elections and Al Qaeda “The golden files of rendition have not been found it, I fear that they were shredded
Files about politicians and their relations
Files about political deals and spies in various groups
Files about Safwat Al Sherif and his sons with their financial corruption scandals.
Files about the journalists who are working for the state security
Our friends found torture devices , sex films made for famous personalities "this is so Safwat Al Sherif !!" and also Sony PlayStation !! They also found weapons and some CSF officer who was so scared and told them that he was innocent. The officer was handed to the army.
The underground prison was hard to find at first but the people found them. Some were speaking about screams from the underground prison. The cells were found , some people say they were locked electronically but they were opened. The detainees were released after being years in detention , one of them has been released there for 14 years !!!!!!!!!!! The detainees were blindfold and stayed in small cell without light !!!!!!!!!! Even the military police soldiers and officers were touched.

Another informative article:
and omg lol:
Several Egyptians reported finding a whole room full of what appeared to be sex tapes. A photo posted on Twitter showed one tape labelled: "Sexual encounter between a Kuwaiti princess and an Egyptian man."
El-Shamy said protesters found a closet full of "belly-dancing outfits", which he speculated were used for some kind of "psychological torture".
State Security building was like a maze with secret doors and prisons. At one point protesters were breaking the floor because they heard sounds underneath them. Not sure if they found every secret door yet. One of the big SS building was designed to look like a Pharaonic temple.

I am saddened to hear of Egyptians fighting other Egyptians over religious prejudice. Now is the time to make the country a truly 21st century model, but unfortunately it doesn't look like that will be the outcome, or at least it will continue to be a struggle before that happens.
Thanks again for bringing us back to this on-going struggle. We have to realize that it will be no simple process for any of the countries attempting similar reform. It's not an overnight thing. Too many problems to tackle all at once or by simply removing the head. That is only the start of things.
One step at a time I guess.
