APRIL 6TH YOUTH MOVEMENT: US secretly backed Egyptian protest leaders

For the last three years, the US government secretly provided aid to the leaders behind this week's social uprising in Egypt aimed to topple the government of President Hosni Mubarak, according to a leaked diplomatic cable

This week's protests in Egypt were instigated by a group of young, educated Egyptians known as the "April 6 youth movement," which has a presence on the social network site Facebook.

The Scobey memo was labeled "April 6 activist on his US visit and regime change in Egypt."
