In his address to the United Nations General Assembly, Pres. Obama covered a wide range of topics, including some strong words for Egypt. The Egyptian military helped to depose former Pres. Mohamed Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood after mass protests filled the streets and led to violence that claimed hundreds of lives. Pres. Obama said of Mr. Morsy and the administration that followed him, "The interim government that replaced him responded to the desires of millions of Egyptians who believed the revolution had taken a wrong turn. But it, too, has made decisions inconsistent with inclusive democracy through an emergency law and restrictions on the press and civil society and opposition parties."
Wolf Blitzer interviews the new Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy about the ouster of Mr. Morsy and the state of democracy in Egypt.
Thousands of anti-government protesters are camped out in Cairo's Tahrir Square, after one deadline passed for embattled Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy to step down, and another one is looming.
Morsy was elected Egypt's president in June 2012, but critics say he has become increasingly authoritarian during his year in power and has failed to revive Egypt's economy.
In an exclusive interview in Cairo in January, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy told Wolf Blitzer that it would take time until real change came to Egypt.
"I would say to start real stability and development, there are steps," Morsy said. "We may take six months or a year. To reach what we want, I think we may take five or ten years to reach 60, 70 percent of what we want."
Today in the 6pm ET hour of "The Situation Room," CNN's Ben Wedeman reports on the latest unrest from Cairo. CNN's Fareed Zakaria and Christiane Amanpour also join Wolf Blitzer for analysis.
