Recently released, Sam LaHood explains to CNN's Soledad O'Brien what he was charged with in Egypt and discusses the detention of himself and his coworkers.
LaHood says, “It was a de facto detention in the sense that we were prevented from being able to leave the country of Egypt.”
Asked about his thoughts on post-Mubarak Egypt, LaHood responds, “From our experience in working in places that are like Egypt, they're going through a transition like this, oftentimes these transitions are uneven and there's bumps in the road. In our case, what we're seeing here is, as I said, former elements of the Mubarak government that are pushing their own agenda that we think is inconsistent with the transition that's going on in Egypt right now, the democratic transition that's going on."
Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien airs week mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.

I am always willing and ready to serve my country in whatever capacity that the American people would desire."
