Fox Business Reporterís Cairo Hotel Room Invaded by Security: 'They're Going to Kill Us!!'
The Daily Caller ^ | 2/2/11 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 02/02/2011 10:11:44 AM PST by Nachum

Covering the melee in Cairo as an American journalist has taken a turn for the worse in the last 24 hours. In addition to the dangers of reporting from an area where the government has failed to ensure basic safety, an alleged pro-Hosni Mubarak mob has infiltrated the protests and is turning violent on protesters and western journalists. Ashley Webster, the overseas market editor for the Fox Business Network, is the latest to face the threats from the pro-Mubarak demonstrators. On Monday, around 10 a.m. Eastern time, Webster tweeted the following:

I suspect some Muslim Brotherhood radicals have infiltrated the “Pro-Mubarak” demonstrators and are going to visit some heavy violence on westerners...simply for easily digested propaganda purposes. Anderson Cooper was just a taste of things to come.

I don’t believe anything these “journalists” are posting including Anderson Cooper’s “beating.” They are all liars but expect them to have Obama saving Egypt. This will be the headline.

Another “Wag The Camel” propaganda job.

Notice they are saying it is pro-Murbarak’s people who are doing the threatening. I don’t know for sure who it is, but, surely, it can’t be the peace-loving anti-government people.

What do you think in a dictatorship during a political uprising?

Security burst into our hotel room and forced our camera off the balcony shouting “they’re going to kill us!!”

He later added they were laying low and would be filing by phone from that point forward.

—————————Security burst in forced camera off balcony, who shouted they’re going to kill us?
well apparently not, he later added, they were laying low and would file reports by phone...

Whole thing sounds fishy to me.

It is not a war and they are stupid to be there. Idiots post here about going to Mexico. Mexico is far more dangerous. You could lose your head in Mexico (literally). Detroit and Camden, NJ are far more dangerous.

Drudge had a link to a live web news feed with Al Jeezzera (yuck) and the Egyptian Army were keeping people separated. It is not a big deal.

But.. Obama has instructed Egyptian security forces to avoid a violent response, which btw is often necessary to 'ensure basic safety' where large protests are concerned.

And at least the writers were honest enough to call the nasties "alleged" Mubarak supporters.

Seems like they were merrily broadcasting images from the balcony, and the security forces wanted them to stop, because they would be a magnet for anyone looking to stir up trouble.

“You idiots, stop broadcasting from here, they will see it on television and come here and kill us!” is what the security people would be sayinf to the reporters.

"pro-Mubarek protestors"

How could they tell? Maybe it was the "Together We Deprive" T-Shirts?

Exactly. Do you think the pro-Iranian/Hamas leaders are stupid not to take advantage here? I bet their all streaming into Cairo now.
