The Devil We Know

In the New York Times, Ross Douthat writes that we actually don't really know what will be next in Egypt, or what would be in America's (or Israel's) best interest. I rarely agree with the conservative Douthat, but I do this time.

One of the things he is right about is that it is quite possible that Mubarak's regime radicalized members of the Muslim Brotherhood who moved on to Al-Qaeda, like Ayman Al-Zawahiri. The big question now, though, is whether or not the people who remain in the Muslim Brotherhood are the ones who didn't become radicalized.
