A revolution brought to you by KFC?

Tarek Amr at Global Voices translates a post from Egyptian blogger Ahmed Khaled Tawfik, describing a very troubling development from Tahrir Square: 

Tens of phone calls have been received by the television channel, whereby callers made the smart point that they had seen the protesters eating from KFC, and that this was proof that they have foreign agendas. They seem to believe that no one can eat from the American chain without being an agent of foreign forces.

KFC's loyalties in the conflict still aren't quite clear yet. Amil Khan reports that one hired pro-Mubarak thug reported being promised "a Coke and a Kentucky Fried Chicken meal deal" to rough up anti-Mubarak protesters. Just whose side is the Colonel on?
