Omar Suleiman-Dead or Killed

For many Egyptians, Omar Suleiman was a symbol of evil incarnate. For twenty years he was the head of Egypt’s General Intelligence Service, aka the mukhabarat. Under him, arbitrary detention and torture became commonplace as deterrents to dissent. He was the contact man for the USA and Israel. As Mubarak fell, Suleiman escaped not only prosecution but investigation, to re-emerge as a would-be presidential candidate. So his death in a Cleveland clinic seemed a strange anticlimax.

Western newspapers saw nothing strange in his death. Doctors spoke of a rare medical condition and regime officials told reporters he’d had heart problems for several years.

In Egypt, however, it is believed by many people that he was murdered. Some western political analysts such as Fareed Zakaria also believe that CIA was behind his death.
