WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says the Obama administration must tell Americans what it knows about who will be Egypt’s next leader.

In a Christian Broadcasting Network interview released Saturday, the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate said the administration should level with the American people on what it knows about the Egyptian crisis.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak wants to rule until September elections.

Mrs. Palin said the United States must find out who is “behind all the turmoil” and that “we should not stand” for a government led by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Referencing a 2008 campaign ad, Mrs. Palin said Egypt was the White House’s “3 a.m. phone call” but it “went right to the answering machine.”

She said the United States must say with whom it stands, “and we do not have all that information yet.”
