On Sunday's Meet the Press, NBC's David Gregory interviewed opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei.

Let's go to the videotape.

Note what he says about the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty at the end. It doesn't sound too 'rock solid' does it?

"Meet the Press" fails in not knowing that they were interviewing someone who isn't part of the talks between Egypt's government and the opposition. They assumed too much about the American MSM's assignment of this ElBaradei guy as the opposition leader.

"Meet the Press" does get points for noticing right off the bat that ElBaradei was talking about putting new conditions on the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel. ElBaradei backed off slightly after being questioned on this, but he may not be the only one who sees the treaty in such terms.

ElBaradei himself is acting as if he's going to be part of the leadership during transition. I think he's dreaming. He thought he had enough clout to refuse to speak to Egyptian's government until Mubarak was thrown out. He doesn't have clout with anyone except the American press (and possibly Obama), as far as I've seen.

You've said the same thing on this blog for years, Carl. Its comes as news to some people but its no surprise ElBaradei agrees with you. Israel made peace with the Egyptian regime and not with the people. No wonder the treaty is going to disappear if not tomorrow then certainly in the foreseeable future.
