The White House is watching cautiously the unraveling of the Hosni Mubarak and Egyptian crisis. President Obama cancelled scheduled briefings and a news conference on Friday during the height of the riots. The President was to speak to the issue, but changed his mind.
"Wisdom dictates that we not step in with pronouncements at this time." Heath Smithers, reporter for the Thomas Jefferson Society for the Definition of Wisdom Weekly asked for clarification of whose wisdom was dictating silence. The White House was silent.
