Cairo (CNN) — Egyptian protesters threw tomatoes and shoes at U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s motorcade Sunday and shouted, “Monica, Monica, Monica” as she left the newly reopened U.S. Consulate in Alexandria.

Clinton said she was in the city to answer critics who believe Washington has taken sides in Egyptian politics. There were already vocal protesters at the start of her visit to the consulate, forcing the ceremony to be moved inside.

“I want to be clear that the United States is not in the business, in Egypt, of choosing winners and losers, even if we could, which, of course, we cannot,” Clinton said at the ceremony to reopen the consulate, which was closed in 1993 because of budget constraints.

  1. I’m thinking they are Muslims, emboldened by the Ikhwan win, chanting the mantra that they hold as central dogma. Israel is the “little Satan”, and The US, th Great Satan. They now feel ready to express that.

  2. You just got duped by CNN. These are the secular supporters. You remember them from the first protests in tahrir square before the MB and Salafists took over. Careful what you read in CNN. Besides Obama there is no bigger mouthpiece for the MB and the caliphate
