FILE - In this Thursday, Aug. 8, 2013 file photo, posters showing Egyptian Army Chief Lt. Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi with Arabic that reads, "Egypt over all," center, are displayed between posters of late Presidents Anwar Sadat, left, and Gamal Abdel Nasser, right, in Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt. Arabic at right reads," don't trust the Brotherhood" and at left, " I was wrong when I released the Brotherhood out of prisons." The head of Egypt’s military, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, is riding on a wave of popular fervor that is almost certain to carry him to election as president. Unknown only two years ago, a broad sector of Egyptians now hail him as the nation’s savior after he ousted the Islamists from power, and the state-backed personality cult around him is so eclipsing, it may be difficult to find a candidate to oppose him if he runs. Still, if he becomes president, he faces the tough job of ruling a deeply divided nation that has already turned against two leaders.(AP Photo/Amr Nabil, File)
