Just long enough for the Muslim Brotherhood to assume power.

(JPost)– Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak may travel to Germany as a patient in part of an exit strategy proposed by the United States, the online version of German newspaper Der Spiegel reported Monday.

The United States government’s plan to end to the political chaos in Egypt appeared to be a scenario wherein Mubarak travels to Germany for a “prolonged health check,” the report suggested.

The New York Times over the weekend reported that secret talks to that effect were being held between the US government and Egyptian military officials.

Talks are already being held with suitable hospitals, particularly with  Max-Grundig-Klinik Bühlerhöhe in the southwestern town of Bühl near Baden-Baden, Spiegel Online reported, according to sources close to the clinic.
