Some protesters are out in Tahrir and some are still even out in and around Lazoghly, where army clashes took place earlier. The protesters were headed to the State Security headquarters. Smoke was coming from the building. State Security has been shredding, burning and destroying documents that presumably would incriminate them, as many like Habib el-Adly, former head of the Interior Ministry, are going to be facing investigations or trials.

Amn Dawla Leaks Website tweets the following links to documents [not in English]: "Outright fraud in the election of the Chamber of Commerce"

And a few on selecting judges:

"Letter to the security of the State Requests sort of judges between the cooperative and is in preparation for the selection of the elections", SSI intervention in identifying some of the judges, and nomination of names of some judges of "collaborators" to monitor the elections

WL Central reported on a document detailing a natural gas deal with Israel. Now, here from Al Masry Al Youm, an article describing the document and giving a little background.

[UPDATE 2011-03-06]

Al Jazeera English report from @AymanM talking about protesters trying to get into a state security building and the resistance they are meeting from the army. He recounts how protesters gathered around building because state security officers have been shredding documents that might implicate them. They tried to get into the main one and the Egypt military would not let them. Announces that a general ordered the building Egyptians tried to storm was to be sealed so evidence could be supposedly collected for investigation and prosecution of former Mubarak regime and state security officials.

Document shows a Coptic church in Alexandria bombed on December 31, 2010, was part of a State Security conspiracy to stop Coptic Christians from protesting. A translation reads:

Regarding mandating the leadership 77 on the date 2/12/2010 to try tying the Copts, put out their protests and calming down the pope Shenouda's tone while describing the regime in his speech. we see the prosecution of any damaging act to any of the big churches in the great Cairo and then fabricate it during the investigations to make sure any of the leaders of the church gets it. then showing the pope Shenouda the results of the investigations and negotiate with him to stop the protests of the Copts on each tiny thing, lowering his tone when talking about the political leaders, stop inciting Copts to go to protests and calming them down to be able to move along with the main stream or showing all the evidence that one of the church leaders committed the crime to all the world so the whole world would stand against the pope and the Copts. which will totally guarantee calming the situation down.

This revelation reinforces revelations in US State Cables from Cairo. Details in 10CAIRO153 show January 6 killings in Naga Hamadi by a Muslim gunman, which was allegedly in response to a Coptic Christian raping a Muslim Girl, created renewed tension between Muslims and Coptic Christians. Pastor Sameh Mories of the Qasr al Dubara Presbyterian Church thinks "Egypt's security services are becoming increasingly powerful and hostile to Muslim converts to Christianity." He laments, "Five years ago, converts to Christianity were persecuted by their families; now the police are turning converts over to their families." Mories adds, "As a church that baptizes Muslims, Qasr al Dubara is under constant police scrutiny, and he complained that three U.S. religious leaders who have had contact with the church had been denied entry into Egypt by the Government of Egypt."


Just Another Egyptian provides this document and the document's translation. @MinaNaguib90 uncovers a meeting on exporting natural gas to Israel: The document from 2005 details how Sharm Elsheikh, Mr. Hussein Salem, Mr. Gamal Mubarak and Mr. Alaa Mubarak discussed procedures for moving on with a deal for exporting natural gas to Israel. Gamal Mubarak accuses Salem of being greedy and conspiring to lower his percentage and raise his percentage that he would get from the deal.

State Security plans to destroy documents uncovered: Documents show that all branches and offices planned to chop, not burn, information available in the archives of departments and sections. They planned to edit secret correspondence. The demonstrations by Egyptians had State Security officers worried and they developed plans for evacuation that included disposing the archives. Using chemicals instead of fire was one method considered.

[UPDATE 2011-03-06]

The Amn Dawla Leaks Web site launched on Facebook last night to distribute documents and news seized by Egyptian activists in the State Security offices of Nasr City and Alexandria. They now have an official twitter feed, @ADLWebsite.

Revelations pouring online include the minutes of the meeting of the State Security to develop a plan for the destruction of confidential documents.

US Defense Secretary, Robert Gates, is racing to Cairo on orders from US President, Barrack Obama to handle the fall out and demise of Egyptian military's junta rule, and the exposure of information from "the secret files on every political and military leader in the country, confidential information once accessible only to ex-intelligence minister Gen. Omar Suleiman before the uprising." (Source: Debka).

From previous WL Coverage:

So who is former intelligence minister Omar Suleiman? Jane Mayer asks the question in her article in the New Yorker, and answers it with information from her book The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How the War on Terror Turned Into a War on American Ideals.

"Since 1993 Suleiman has headed the feared Egyptian general intelligence service. In that capacity, he was the C.I.A.’s point man in Egypt for renditions—the covert program in which the C.I.A. snatched terror suspects from around the world and returned them to Egypt and elsewhere for interrogation, often under brutal circumstances.".

Revelations also include a sex tape of Kuwait Royal Princess with a businessman in Alexandria from the #AmnDawla twitter feed.
