Holy shit, this might just be a transformational moment in the Middle East — not one engineered by Condi, mind you, but based on genuine populist outrage. I tweeted this earlier, but that’s at least 3 regimes that have been threatened/brought to their knees by new technology. Not to fellate social media — it is and remains a matter of profit — but wow. This would not have happened 15 years ago in a different era.
