It would appear that Egypt has their reply to Obama's request to release Morsi and treat him with kid gloves. They appear to be set to put him down through their legal most former leaders seem to end with these days.

(Reuters) - Egypt announced a criminal investigation on Saturday against deposed Islamist president Mohamed Mursi, with prosecutors saying they were examining complaints of spying, inciting violence and ruining the economy.

It really would be rich if he's held at the same place Mubarak is. I'm sure Hosni would have a few choice words for the guy who so gleefully replaced his own forceful removal in almost the very same way.

Egypt's first freely elected leader has been held at an undisclosed location since the army removed him from power on July 3, but has not yet been charged with any crime. In recent days Washington has called for him to be freed and for the authorities to stop arresting leaders of his Muslim Brotherhood.

ooo... They're asked to stop arresting people our Government favors. Well, again, it appears Egypt has little to no time or tolerance for what Washington wants or needs. In this case, I'm happy to see it. Long term, it's a bad sign and trend ..but short term, someone needed their wings clipped, badly and Morsi wasn't the only one here.

In recent days it has described Mursi's rule as undemocratic because of the vast popular protests against him, but also urged the authorities to release him and stop detaining his followers. Its wavering position has infuriated both sides.

...and there is the heart of the problem, IMO. It's not the the United States is taking the wrong side these days. It's that we seemingly take EVERY side, depending on the audience of the moment and events of that specific day. It leaves the world uncertain and anything but trusting toward a nation with our power and ability.

However, on this point, it looks like Egypt will do what Egypt feels must be done in settling the ledger from Morsi's time in power.

Perhaps Morsi can answer for things like this:

Egypt issues arrest warrant for TV satirist

The whole concept of a satirist being arrested by the State for daring to poke fun at the leader was entertaining when it was in a movie like V for Vendetta. It was far less entertaining to actually see played out in real life against a real person. Just one of a long line of examples that has a bee in Egypt's collective bonnet at the moment.

Perhaps Egypt can get a decent start this time.

There may be another reason for the arresting of MB members in Egypt.

English Translation:

• SECRET agreement between the Obama administration and the Muslim Brotherhood (not the Egyptian government) to give 40% of the Sinai and the annexation of that part of Egyptian territory in Gaza. The objective is to facilitate the conclusion of a comprehensive peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians
• This agreement was signed by Khairat el Shater (number 2 of the Brotherhood) by Morsi and the Supreme Guide FM. (FM stands for Muslim Brotherhood)
• A sum of U.S. $ 8 billion was paid to the FM.
• The document was seized by the army following the deposition of Morsi. This is the army that has leaked the news.
• An investigation is ongoing Morsi and El Shater. An arrest warrant was filed against the Guide to FM and other members of his office.
• FM signatories to the agreement are liable to the death penalty for treason.
• The Obama administration would try to reach an agreement with el Sissi (chairman of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces): recognition of the legitimacy of the “coup” in exchange for his silence about the secret agreement. But el Sissi would be more interested in the conviction of FM and discredit their organization which is Egypt’s main source of danger.

I'm waiting for another news source to cover this in English, when I have the link I'll post.

you are all falling for this , how else would Obama end the MB ? he will just act in front of the Egyptians and the world that he is supporting him and Bingo every body is against Morsi and the MB , even western people will fall for it , its as simple as that .

for your information they have nothing against him, not a single crime , but of course , now that they have all the power to do any thing and write any thing on government papers , bribe hundreds to be witnesses , i guarantee you he will stay in jail for a long time , because all the current allegations are filed after he was jailed , as if he was talking to any body or instructing anyone from there .
