Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi visited Tuesday afternoon the Egyptian General Intelligence Service headquarters in Cairo where he held a meeting to discuss the latest regional developments and their impacts on Egyptian national security. 

In a statement issued Tuesday by the presidency, spokesperson Alaa Youssef said the meeting was attended by the head of General intelligence Khaled Fawzi and other officials.

The Egyptian presidency added that the president listened to a number of assessments regarding national security strategies proposed by the Egyptian intelligence officials regarding the different challenges Egypt is currently facing. 

This is the third time El-Sisi has visited the General Intelligence headquarters, with the prior meetings taking place in January and October 2015.

Security assessment report
If this Intelligence HQ would have real concern for Egypt they would wake Sisi up to top high risks facing the country: (1) The dire economic situation in Egypt is arguably the highest risk for potential instability and uprising; it is far more dangerous than a few Islamist extremists whom could easily be eliminated if the People and State are on the same page. (2) Alienating journalists, intellects, and writers with jail and forced disappearance, can turn the entire public opinion against the government; especially in a time when the economy is hurting. (3) The tried, tested, and failed security policies have so far killed both Tourism and Investments; perhaps it’s time to recalibrate before Egypt passes the point of no return. OR perhaps the iHQ could hide this report and share the other “pleasing” report with Sisi about how his great wise leadership is a model for the entire region to follow, and we should do more of the same!
