Hello all,

Here is a Global Voices roundup on Egypt: The Day the Secrets were  
Revealed by Amira Al Hussaini (@justamira)

<<<The whole story is well worth everyone's time, but here are some  
tidbits of note:

  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.
* Sheikh Karadawy
* 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 sects
* Religious conservative “allegedly full floor dedicated to them”
* Mortada Mansour
* 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>>>

Of note for the members of this list is the mention of transcripts  
from call in show callers and a file with "Yahoo emails that have been  

Also, note the twitter debate about publishing or not publishing all  
the files online and the links at the bottom of the story to a flickr  
set and a facebook page where some documents have been made available.

I'll end here, without an obligatory Malcolm Gladwell joke.
