Tarek and John are free

Tarek and John are out of jail.

Thank you to everyone who followed, supported, wrote letters, helped, worked, and kept going when this thing ended up going so much longer than we thought it would.

Tarek and John are out of jail.

Thank you to everyone who followed, supported, wrote letters, helped, worked, and kept going when this thing ended up going so much longer than we thought it would.

I know that we made a few sites (tarekandjohn.com, podur.org) focal points for communications, but in case it wasn’t obvious, there were a great many people who deployed a pretty remarkable array of talents and skills – and in Egypt, courage – to this problem. It is impossible to acknowledge them all… partly because so many of you just quietly went about doing what had to be done. But I will never have enough thanks to give for what everybody did here.

Thank you for coming here for updates. This blog is going to return to what it used to be, a place for writing and analysis on international politics. Like I said on twitter, no hard feelings if you unfollow me now!
