al Jazeera Reports Prominent Egyptians Are Flying Out

Egypt's national carrier has suspended all flights into or out of Cairo airport but al Jazeera reports that hasn't stopped a number of top Egyptian businessmen and prominent individuals from arranging their own flights out of the capital.  There is some speculation that Mubarak himself may have fled.

It now appears that the Egyptian army armoured vehicles seen on the streets of Cairo have moved into position to secure the American and British embassies as well as the Cairo museum.   The tanks have also established a cordon outside the NDP headquarters which seems to have been totally gutted by fires.

Now many Egyptians are asking why president Obama isn't supporting the protesters.  Many commentators on al Jazeera believe that the protests have reached a critical mass and that Mubarak and his governing party are finished.
