Allegation: Tamarod was Manipulated by Army All Along

This is getting attention from Egyptians: a member of the Tamarod Movement that launched the June 30 protests appears to acknowledge that the movement was bring manipulated by the Army.

If true, I doubt if this will have much effect on the overall enthusiasm for Sisi, and it may be typical Middle Eastern conspiracy-mongering, but it adds a certain irony to all the protest e-mails I received last summer insisting it was "not a coup."
