‘Enough is enough,’ says wife of former Morsy aide jailed in Egypt

Sarah Attia moved to Toronto to offer her family security, after her husband – Khaled Al-Qazzaz – was imprisoned following the military takeover in Egypt almost a year ago. He vanished among many others close to the Morsy government. Until recently, the international community has remained largely silent but a letter smuggled out of an Egyptian jail and published by the New York Times has enabled Al-Qazzaz to question the Egyptian military and the world. Attia talked to Amanpour from Canada and told her that she is haunted by fears of what the article could mean for her husband. "I've been waking up every day since this letter was published, really worrying what could happen to him next." Though she now lives in fear, there came a point when Attia and her husband could no longer stay silent. "We all reached a point where we said enough is enough - we can not sit down and do nothing anymore. Khaled has been behind bars in Egypt's worst prisons for almost a year now." Sarah and Khaled have four young children. Amanpour asked what they think about why their father was imprisoned. "They know that their father was doing a good thing," said Attia. "He used to tell them that I'm working on making Egypt a better place."

‘Clear as day’ Iran would enrich after nuclear deal says ‘positive’ former U.S. professional

It’s “as clear as day” that under any nuclear deal, Iran will continue to enrich fissile material, the former U.S. official on non-proliferation Mark Fitzpatrick told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday. “There’s going to be some enrichment at the end of the day of any deal that’s done,” Fitzpatrick said. “Iran is just simply not going to capitulate no matter how many sanctions they face.” Though the details of on-going nuclear talks between Iran and world powers are scarce, most agree that a deal would include the temporary removal of some economic sanctions in exchange for assurances that Iran is not seeking nuclear weapons – though the country would likely still be allowed to enrich uranium for civilian and research use. Though the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty – to which Iran is signatory – allows for nuclear enrichment, numerous U.N. Security Council resolutions have called on Iran to halt all enrichment activity. Fitzpatrick said he is “unusually optimistic” that the pieces are in place for a nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

‘Inherently incredible’ that UK intelligence is breaking regulation, says MP and former security secretary Rifkind

Brits have little reason to worry that their intelligence agencies are breaking the law, Malcolm Rifkind, chairman of UK Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday. “When criminals break the law they are hoping to have financial gain, make a lot of money. That’s what crime is all about,” Rikfind said, who is also a former UK defense secretary and foreign secretary. “We’re talking about intelligence agencies. The heads of these agencies are very senior public servants. What personal benefit do they get from breaking the law? They would be committing a crime; they would end up being prosecuted if it was found out.” “I can’t prove it never happens, but I find it inherently implausible in any rational basis.”

Egypt is not “going to elect a dictator,” Former Foreign Minister Amr Moussa told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday as Egyptians went to the polls. Former Egyptian military chief Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is expected to win the presidency. “We are not going to elect a dictator,” Moussa said. “We are going to elect a president under the stipulations of a constitution.” His comments came in response to a statement by el-Sisi’s sole opponent, Hamdeen Sabahi, that if elected he would release “all the innocent people who were convicted according to this unconstitutional law” – referring to a controversial demonstration law enacted last year. “He said I am going to release all innocent people, meaning that he's not going to release the non-innocent people,” Moussa said. “And who determined that? Only the courts can determine that.”

Afghanistan should sign U.S. security deal, presidential candidate and former foreign minister Zalmai Rassoul tells Amanpour

Afghanistan should sign an agreement that would keep some U.S. troops in the country after 2014, Afghan presidential candidate Zalmai Rassoul told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday. “I hope and I'm confident that the zero option will not be an option,” Rassoul said. Leaving no U.S troops after 2014 is “not a good option for Afghanistan and therefore for the United States,” he said. Rassoul, an establishment figure and former foreign minister, did not directly criticize President Hamid Karzai, who has refused to sign such a deal. Afghanistan’s Loya Jirga, or grand assembly, has endorsed the security deal. The Obama administration announced earlier this week that it had warned Afghanistan that it has started planning for a possible withdrawal of all U.S. troops by the end of the year if no security agreement is signed. Rassoul said that he did not believe Afghanistan was at risk of breaking out into civil war, and that the Afghan national security forces are “well trained” and “ready to defend Afghanistan.” Nonetheless, he admitted that they are “not yet well equipped.” “They are suffering from that. They need better equipment, training and advice.”
