Popular theory holds that after Mohammed Morsi's ouster, the power came back on and gas lines disappeared because Hosni Mubarak's entrenched "deep state" was deliberately undermining Morsi during his term. More likely, Egypt's large and immovable bureaucracy simply wasn't equipped to deal with the new leadership, which too quickly pushed its own agenda rather than a national one. Analysts say Egypt's experience is a lesson to countries around the region that even when you change the leadership, it's much harder to tackle the deep state that remains.
