(FILE - In this Wednesday, April 24, 2013 file photo, Egyptian Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi salutes during an arrival ceremony for U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel at the Ministry of Defense in Cairo. With expectations high that he'll run for president, Egypt's military chief has been busy studying the details of the nation's most pressing problems and consulting with experts about possible solutions, two top officials said. Phenomenally popular, the 59-year-old infantry officer knows that if he becomes president he must quickly show that he is capable of tackling the daunting challenge of retaining the adulation of his people while making unpopular decisions.
