DEVELOPING: A failed assassination attempt on Egypt’s vice president in recent days left two of his bodyguards dead, U.S. sources tell Fox News, though that information has yet to be confirmed on the ground in Cairo.

Such an attempt on the life of Omar Suleiman would mark an alarming turn in the uprising against the government of President Hosni Mubarak, who only recently named Suleiman as vice president in an effort to quell the unrest and possibly line up a successor.

What exactly are Mubarak’s crimes, according to the protesters? Heard a guy talking on the news, saying he should be taken to court and held accountable for his crimes... which are? Just curious... haven’t kept up with this very well.

But he has managed to royally screw up a most important ally, in what, less than a week?

I think you give him too much credit.
If he has anything to do with it, it's indirectly, by being and portraying America as too weak.

I bet he cries himself to sleep at night, the little turd.

Indeed, unless it hurts one of their own... NO anti-war massing and only “NATO” troops get killed now.

I am sure this assassination attempt was sponsored by the same group sponsoring the pro Mubarak "gangs".

It does not take a rocket scientist to see what is happening here...

Interesting article. If the attempted assassins got away they better run long and hard because this VP sounds like he's a man not to be messed with.

Yet Gen Suleiman has no experience of managing an economy, let alone running schools or hospitals.

Running the economy, schools or hospitals mean little if radical muslims take over the country. I'd bet a President Suleiman could manage that without radicals in control.

A "wishful thinking" press release from the 0bama Regime?

Or maybe marching orders from same?

But an attack on Suleiman would ruin the sweet little narrative the anti-Mubarak Islamo-marxists are trying to foist on the world media.

No wonder Gibbsie wouldn’t touch it.

If true, I guess this would put to rest the nonsense that it’s only Mubarak supporters who have resorted to violence. But I won’t hold my breath.

What exactly are Mubarak’s crimes

He was trying to keep the brothers down.. the Muslim Brotherhood that is. Not to mention honoring the peace treaty with Israel.

And not only THAT- but here’s the clincher- it happened DAYS ago. It happened within 24 hours of his being named VP.

And this is the first we’re learning of it.

Wow. What the HELL is going on????

Not that big a deal. Mubarak has had 6 attempts on his life by Muslim Brotherhood agents operating under the names of different groups. Still, this assassination attempt is a sign that the VP has hit the big time. You don’t really get assassination attempts on peons.

I guess you're innocent of the post I just made to you.

But seriously, this is indeed infuriating news. The whole narrative is being twisted. The media wouldn't let the truth out to allow any sympathy for the new VP.

I hate the world media. And that includes the American media that plays along. Fox has dirty hands, too.

At least Fox is letting the cat out of the bag now, two days late.

#egypt re-reports of assassination attempt against Suleiman. US source says "NO evidence of any attempt...rumor originated with media."

From Richard Engel, NBC News

Why, then, wouldn't Gibbs shoot down the report?
