David Risley served as the Judicial Attaché at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt from late 2010 through early 2014, and was a witness to the Egyptian revolutions that swept through the country in 2011, and again in 2013. Risley provided a detailed description of the nuances and complexities of Egyptian society, with special attention on the country’s judicial system. He provided insights into both of the Egyptian revolutions, the first resulting in the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Mohamed Morsi, becoming president, and the second resulting in the forced overthrow of Morsi.
