Further Confusion on SCAF Membership

Yet another name has turned up identified as a member of Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), according to a website that tries to track such things. As I noted here previously, for a body exercising the supreme executive authority in Egypt, it's surprising how hard it is to find agreement on precisely who the members of SCAF are: "official" lists originally showed 14 or 15 members, bur at least 22 different names have appeared on varying lists.

They could, of course, post the names to their website or Facebook page, but then the foreign agents seeking to undermine the revolution would find out. When the military delegation was in Washington recently trying to explain the NGO campaign, I wonder if anyone asked them for a list? Of course the US (along with our usual allies, Israel and Iran) are all behind the Freemasons' plot against Egypt anyway. Or something like that.
