    the man speaks so much yet says so little! not one yes or no question answered with yes or no. Follow up questions only trigger another rant about another topic. Ahmadinejad has competition! The man spent 7 years in the US and speaks fluent English yet insists on speaking in arabic with the sole purpose of avoiding follow up questions and getting the interviewer a bit lost with the on site translator (if there is one). Poor Wolf!

    President Morsi addresses Coptic Christians as his "Beloved"? How??? He released and freed all Jehadists prisoners and terrorists (who specialize in killing Coptic Christians in Egypt) These prisoners are now unleashed and killing innocent Copts on daily basis...simply put...all his answers were LIES. His plan is to wipe out oppositions of all kinds and become an absolute dictator, it's just a matter of time. He is indeed the WORST president in the world

    Mr. Wolf , at the end of your interview, you said to him , we depend on you, what does that mean?
    How can you depend on a leader of a double faced organization which supports and practices terrorism and denounces it at the same time?
    In what exactly you depend on him to do ??

    Morsi lied through his teeth thevfull length of the interview. Isn't your job as a journalist to expose his lies, not cover them? Or does CNN now acts as the media arm of the American government, which continues to support the Middle Eastern tyrants, one after another?

    People in America need to understand the fact that DEMOCRACY isn't not the answer to every other country's problems. We talk about spreading democracy around the world because we've been duped into equating it with freedom. When in fact, it is actually the opposite. No where in our Constitution or the DOI does the word DEMOCRACY appear, yet 95% of us think we are suppose to have a democratic form of government. Well, we are supposed to be a REPUBLIC, not a democratic republic. A Democracy is great for a group of people who control the resources in this country, but what good is it for the average citizen? Stop trying to fix other countries' problems and fix our own.

      with all respect, your post too general, very sophmoric.

    Wolf,
    I like watching you report the news, but I believe that some times you seem to become a part of the US Government propaganda machine mouthpiece.

    I was just watching you reporting about the cyber attack on the banks, and some how you jump to conclusion that it was done by Iran.
    Which I don't believe, and I know you don't believe yourself, because you know that It was done by Israel, to trigger a war with Iran, I think you should look carefully , what the Israelis are doing to make sure that there is a war with Iran over its Nuclear program.

    And If Iran really did it, I believe that its about time they retaliation for what the US and Israel and other western pro countries are doing to them!.

    But I do believe you should stop buying into the propaganda of everything happen bad is Iran.

    A contact of mine in Cairo says this bunch in power now is "the most evil " government in the history of the country. That is saying a lot. He was optimistic as it gets to years ago but now like everyone else in Egypt he is very scared and worried for his family and friends.

      Greg, keep in mind that your... "Contact" is but one of many, what about the opinions of other egyptians? Or they don't matter?

    He's demanding Obama free the "Blind Sheik" that's the guy who masterminded the 1993 WTC bombing and is directly involved in the murders of Americans in America. I'm pretty sure Obama will do it. After all, Egypt asks, we deliver.
