Who the fark hates Richard Engel? He's one of the few actual journalists left whose opinion on middle eastern topics actually farking matters. He has been in the Middle East for like a decade now. He has filed reports about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as the subsequent after math. He is one of the few that continued to care years later. He was there for the Egyptian revolution. He was there in Libya. Now he's in Syria. Subby, you seriously think this was Richard Engel's first day in the Middle East? He speaks Arabic for farks sake, the guy knows what the hell he's doing.

I'm guessing it's because Engel works for the mainstream MSM liberal elite media, right?

I love this headline. It sets a new bar for assholic greened headlines. We are one step away from a "Elementary school students get in the way of gun owners right to fire his weapon." headline.

I don't get the hate here. Engel is very bright, well informed, takes his job seriously...and he speaks fluent Arabic, for Pete's sake, which is way more than most American foreign correspondents can say. He's covered some incredibly dangerous areas that would most likely cause Subby to immediately wet both sides of his pants. Did he get over-confident? Maybe. That's not a capital crime. Plenty of other journalists (and other civilians) have been kidnapped while trying to do their job in war-torn areas. It's not like he was backpacking through Iran on a whim.

He's not related to Friedrich Engels, if that's what's got some of you all pissy.

/Geraldo is a low-rent clown on his best day.

With all due respect, Subby, you can go f**k yourself.
