Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak still has a few friends in high places.
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair explained Tuesday that the embattled Egyptian president was "immensely courageous and a force for good."
Appearing on CNN, Blair praised Mubarak's role in brokering peace between Israel and Palestine. The former prime minister is now an envoy to the peace process.
"Nobody seems quite sure what to say about President Mubarak," CNN's Piers Morgan noted. "Depending on who you talk to, he's been a force for good or a force for evil. The people are clearly in Egypt making their feelings clear. Where do you stand on him?"
"Well, where you stand on him depends on whether you've worked with him from the outside or on the inside," Blair replied. "And for those of us who worked with him over the -- particularly now I worked with him on the Middle East peace process between the Israelis and the Palestinians, so this is somebody I'm constantly in contact with and working with."
