'This Week' Transcript: Timothy Geithner


GHONIM: The army is actually so far is trying to protect the revolution. They're doing mistakes just like any system in the world. Plus this is completely new to them. But at the end of the day, they have been showing a great deal of commitment towards protecting the revolution.

MORAN: The military government has scheduled elections later this year and the generals did seem to respond to the people's demand this week when Mubarak himself and two sons were arrested for corruption and other charges.

So, is Egypt heading towards true democracy or is it a mirage?

There are no guarantees here, but the people are rising and there is no going back.

For This Week I'm Terry Moran in Cairo.


AMANPOUR: And we will keep monitoring those stories. And when we come back, a moment in history, 50 years since an iconic turning point in the Cold War. A milestone for a perpetual thorn in America's side.


AMANPOUR: With attention focused on falling dictators across the world, a dictator right next door marks a milestone for endurance. There are parades and commemorations in Cuba this weekend on the 50th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion, a turning point of the Cold War. ABC's Jim Sciutto is in Havana and you can find his full report online at abcnews.com/thisweek.

That's it for our program. You can follow me online on Twitter and abcnews.com. For all of us here at This Week, thank you for watching and see you again next week.
