A Roundtable Of Granite Staters With Connections To Egypt


As unrest continues in Egypt, we'll get the thoughts of Granite Staters with an affiliation to the country. We’ll get their thoughts about the recent unrest in that country after the army ousted President Mohammed Morsi last month.  We’ll find out what they’re hearing from friends and family in Egypt and hear their hopes and concerns for the country’s future, including its relations with the U.S.
