As nightfall came across Cairo, word came to the angry protesters, on their 18th day, that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has officially resigned.

Reports earlier in the day had indicated that under the cover of night, Mubarak was shepherded out the country. These reports are unconfirmed. Update: It is being reported that Mubarak left the Presidential residence, and flew to his winter home.

At 1:30pm, Pres. Barack “Carter” Obama is expected to make a public statement about the ongoing process in Egypt. It should be noted that with Mabarak’s departure, the coming months will be volatile, and could have a major impact on our international relations.
