Egypt's popular military chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah el Sissi has attended a number of foreign military courses.
This morning Im reading about the Egyptians voting on a new constitution. It is very amazing. The Christian minority is rally behind the charter. People are very positive about the future in that Nation. One report said that as helicopters hovered over the heads of voters Wednesday a loud cheer went up. Thank you, el Sissi! the crowd shouted, referring to the countrys popular military chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah el Sissi.
So I was interested to know if el Sissi had attended any Senior Service Schools. He had. He had attended several including in the U.S. and other countries. Heres a list of some of his courses and assignments:
General Command and Staff Course, Egyptian Command and Staff College, 1987 General Command and Staff Course, Joint Command and Staff College, United Kingdom, 1992 War Course, Fellowship of the Higher War College, Nasser's Military Sciences Academy, Egypt, 2003 War Course, US Army War College, United States, 2006 Egyptian Military Attaché in Riyadh, KSA Basic Infantry Course, USA
Looking back one would have to assume that some of this training prepared him for leadership in helping to build a strong society that respects life and liberty. I wish the Iranian Air Force officer would have had the same opportunity.
