Egypt's Military Charged With Keeping The Peace

Egypt's military leaders gave some indication Saturday of how they will rule the country in the wake of President Hosni Mubarak's resignation. The military said the country will abide by international agreements. It also said the government appointed by President Mubarak will remain in place until a new one is formed. Host Scott Simon speaks with Dr. Paul Sullivan, a professor of economics at the National Defense University, about the role of the military in post-Mubarak Egypt.
