More on the Supreme Council

I'm seeing reports that the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has only publicly announced meeting three times: 1967, 1973, and today.

Note that the official statement said that "the military" convened the Supreme Council, not that the Commander-in-Chief (Mubarak) did.

I think the Army is in the driver's seat.
