Dempsey said he found the Egyptian military “quite eager” to get out of the country-running business.
“In June they’ll salute a civilian president for the first time … and then they’ll go back to barracks. But I don’t think it’s going to be as clean as that.”
Contending with being subordinate to a civilian authority won’t be easy, Dempsey said, but today “they’re all saying the right things, and I believe they all intend the right things.”
Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey met with his Egyptian counterpart, Lt. Gen. Sami Hafez Enan, as well as with Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi and other officials at Egypt’s Ministry of Defense.
They discussed the long-term relationship between the U.S. and Egypt and several of that nation’s regional issues. Dempsey said he found the Egyptian military “quite eager” to get out of the country-running business.
