« Yemeni nuclear program? | Main | Egypt's press and the end of Arab reform »

July 06, 2006



A guy claims to have seen somebody in prison in Egypt, and that's a news story? As if the press couldn't verify who is in prison? Or as if the United States couldn't? Wouldn't it be reasonable to think Bush's good friend Hosni would let him know he had the new leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq in a Cairo prison?

Good thing Elvis wasn't an Arab.


Could the press or the US verify who's in prison in Egypt? Well, State Security in Egypt works under emergency law and if they pick you up on security grounds you could just disappear in the labyrinth...it's a police state, remember? Though it does seem odd that the US and Egyptian authorities would not have communicated about the presence of said leader in Egyptian jails.
