Links: Arab Spring

As you may know, I am a news junkie. I’ve followed the Arab Spring uprisings for some time now. Egypt made headlines as Hosni Mubarak was overthrown, and there have been stories trickling out since about the continuing corruption and abuse by the military government. Libya has also gotten a lot of press recently due to UN/NATO intervention. But Syria has been relatively opaque due to the lack of access from international media. What we have heard is pretty shocking especially since there is little hope of outside intervention. In light of the complexity of everything going on and the differences from country to country this is going to be a list of news sources from a variety of perspectives.
