(Newser) – Mohamed ElBaradei isn’t satisfied with President Mubarak’s pledge to stand down in September—he wants him out now. “Nobody is satisfied with that, nobody is ready to be naïve, not see a ploy,” ElBaradei told the Wall Street Journal and other media outlets. “It’s an act of deception to me.” Protesters will only go home “once he’s out of the country,” ElBaradei said.
