Anderson Cooper appeared on David Letterman’s “Late Show” and he talked about being attacked in Egypt last week. “I don’t recommend it,” he told Letterman. “I’d never been punched in the head before.”

Cooper continued his recent pattern of very tough talk about the government of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak. He said the regime has been “continuously lying” to people throughout the uprising, that the people who attacked him were a group of “thugs” organized by the government, and that the Egyptian people are simply demanding “basic rights” from a “dictator.”

Cooper also revealed that his limited Arabic got the better of him during the attack. He thought he was saying “peace” to his attackers, but it turned out he was actually using the Arabic term for “God willing.” He called the slip “sort of stupid.”
