Exclusive: Sam LaHood discusses ordeal in Egypt

Just back on U.S. soil following months on Egypt’s no-fly list, Sam LaHood says “former elements of the Mubarak government that are pushing their own agenda” in Egypt right now are creating difficulties for the democratic transition currently underway.

LaHood, who works for the International Republican Institute, and son of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, was prevented from leaving Egypt when his offices, and those of other NGO's operating in Egypt were raided by authorities last December.

What was it like to be prevented from flying home, and what is next? LaHood spoke with CNN first about the ordeal.

    Welcome home, Sam LaHood! Many of us are not fed up with Egyptians care a lot what they deserve. Are we?
