President Obama welcomed Egypt's peaceful transition of power Friday upon the resignation of longtime President Hosni Mubarak. "The people of Egypt have spoken. Their voices have been heard. And Egypt will never be the same," he said.
In brief remarks in the White House's Grand Foyer, Mr. Obama noted that it was "not the end of Egypt's transition, it's the beginning." He said that many important questions remain to be resolved and difficult times lie ahead.
