    Foreign Affairs Adviser and former Ambassador Frank Wisner appeared on CNBC’sSquawk Box” on August 16 to discuss the role the United States should play in Egypt during this time of political unrest. Characterizing the relationship between the two countries as “extraordinary,” Ambassador Wisner stressed that America need not take political sides in Egypt, rather simply be on Egypt’s side. “What the United States needs to do now is make it clear that we are on the side of a rapid transition to the installation of democracy, the completion of a constitution, the writing of proper electoral rules and getting on with an election that restores legitimate government,” Ambassador Wisner said during the segment.
