SCAF profiles I am trying to build - still in progress though - can be found here (http://ow.ly/9WNhP)...
Current Count: 23 (assuming Etman still a member)
Multiple News Reports
Meet General Mahmoud Nasr - assistant defense minister for finance and also a SCAF member. The man emerged in December (but I didn't notice until he came up again recently with some statements regarding the military budget, state expenses, etc. (which will be disputed in a blog post soon)...This brings me to a total of 23! (getting closer to that Economist cited number of 24 - although they gave no details as to names so unsure if we are counting the same people).
I plan on trying to assess and shed light on some of his comments in the near future given the mysterious nature of military finances.

Department of Defense and Daily News Egypt
Must have missed this SCAF member - Staff Major General Ibrahim Al-Noshy! haven't seen his name elsewhere but while reading a department of defense communique highlighting US-Egyptian military meetings over recent days they were listing people that US personnel met with and there was a name I hadn't seen before – commenting that he was “chief of the Egyptian Army’s training authority”. After a bit of searching, found this article http://ow.ly/91dbP that lists him as a SCAF member and in charge of Sinai affairs.
This brings me to a total of 22! (Although, as a reader pointed out a few weeks back THIS (http://ow.ly/91diF) Economist article had the number at 24 but listed no names so unclear who.)
