Occupy Egypt Toads Return To U.S.

By Wyatt Earp | November 28, 2011

The lesson here is that if you are an American committing acts of terrorism abroad, our country will bail you out and give you safe passage home.

Three American students arrested during a protest in Cairo have arrived home after being released from prison yesterday. Gregory Porter was the first to land at Philadelphia International Airport on Saturday afternoon. Fellow students Derrik Sweeney, 19 and Luke Gates, 21 landed on American soil later on Saturday.

Check out the smirk on Porter and tell me he doesn’t know what he got away with.

And if you think the terrorism label is unfair, read on.

They were arrested last Sunday on the roof of a university building near Tahrir Square after being accused of throwing firebombs at Egyptian security forces. Earlier today, Mr Sweeney’s father, Kevin, told CNN that his son had been falsely accused and that he was merely ‘observing something that was definitely a phenomenon of the culture’.

That’s understandable. I mean, Egypt would like nothing more than to frame a couple of punk American kids for merely observing a protest, right?

Cairo’s top prosecutor said security forces had found a bag containing empty bottles, gasoline, a towel and a camera with the Americans, who said the bag belonged to two friends. Video footage taken from the protests shows at least two of the students, their faces covered by bandanas, taking part alongside the Egyptians.

So much for that peaceful observer angle, huh? Like most protesters, these three terrorists were so brave that they decided to cover their faces. But I guarantee we’ll see their shining faces on the network news shows for the next week, smirks and all.

Considering the video evidence, Egypt should have held them for trial, and Derrik Sweeney’s daddy should probably STFU now.

    These guys would fit in with the crowd at Zucotti Park. Then again, maybe they need to Occupy a Jail Cell. OJC, a new movement.

    Jon – And I’ll wager he’s guilty as hell.

    TonyF – He should come to Philly. Our mayor gives ultimatum after ultimatum and Occupy Philly ignores them. Guess what? Nutter keeps folding.

    What TonyF said about OJC.
    And how about a new pasta called Zuccotti? Served with protestor feces and lice.

    Cut them some slack it was probably Fraternity Rush Week in Egypt. You know put a couple dozen shots in you and a toga party and the next thing you know you are throwing bombs.

    Seriously, they should have been tried and sent off to a Turkish Prison.

    Howdy Wyatt! Oh yeah, I hadn’t heard about the video of at least two of ‘em actually taking part in the protests in Egypt.
    And the guy with the smirk on his face actually said he was thrown in an Egyptian jail and “brutally interrogated -they even threatened to pour gasoline down my throat!”

    If Egypt didn’t need our money, and whatever briber, er, payment for services rendered in getting those three punks outta Egypt, they received, we’d never have heard anything other than they were in Egypt and now no one knows where they are.
    OK, they’ve had their 15 minutes of fame. Give ‘em their parting gifts and send them back to the anonymity which they so richly deserve.

    Ferrell – Some some Islamist can ask them, “Billy, have you ever seen a grown man naked?”

    Real – I’d rather send them back to Egypt, since Porter is a rich kid from a rich Philly suburb: Glenside.

    I swear to God, in the dictionary I’m holding right here, beside the word “prick” is a photo of that little man.

    You’d smirk too if you just dodged life in an Egyptian prison. I hear they don’t have cable and the conjugal visits are from the next cell. Sorry, I meant the next 10 cells.
