Mubarak Won't Seek New Term

Mubarak says he won't seek new term. Despite speech, protesters demand resignation.

Nicholas D. Kristof in his blog: That would have been a historic decision if he had made it two weeks ago, and it might have avoided the present mess. But today, it’s too little, too late. And if the White House has devoted its political capital to getting Mubarak to agree to such a half-measure, then I fear that there’s a measure of cluelessness on both sides. And he continues, I’m afraid that too many Egyptian and American officials have been spending their time talking to each other, and not enough time talking to grassroots Egyptians in Tahrir Square and elsewhere.
