Cairo Mural


FILE - In this March 30, 2011, file photo, a mural depicting a man in shackles and the Facebook logo and a mobile phone is seen on the wall of the University of Helwan arts academy in the Zamalek neighborhood of Cairo, Egypt. The team from the CIA's Open Source Center, housed in a unassuming brick building in a Virginia industrial park, pores daily over tweets, Facebook, newspapers, TV news channels, local radio stations, Internet chat rooms _ anything overseas that anyone can access, and contribute to, openly. The center saw the uprising in Egypt coming said the center’s director, Doug Naquin. The center already had "predicted that social media in places like Egypt could be a game-changer and a threat to the regime," he said in a recent interview with The Associated Press.
