Mapping Egyptian Military Influence
In Egypt Askar Kazeboon (The Military are Liars) is a public-awareness campaign critical of the role of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) in Egyptian affairs.
The Askar Kazeboon Map is a crowd-sourced Google Map highlighting how retired military officers are being given important roles within the civilian, political and administrative bureaucracy of the country. Each marker on the map names an ex-military officer and indicates which civilian role that they now occupy.
