    Can you PLEASE take this down. NBC has asked for a media blackout so they can try and address the situation and not endanger their reporters any more than they are. People are linking to this story on twitter.

    I could see this coming. The man complacency during his reporting was apparent and he took many chances. Complacency kills.

    I was just thinking about Richard last week being in such a dangerous area. I hope and pray that both of them will be back safe and sound. I think that Richard takes far to many risks.

    I hope he is OK. I like him.

    Richard Engel is a ‘Netanyahu-Democrat’(in other words, the same as a Neocon with his warmongering) and hopeless propagandist for the Israeli Lobby.

    Just as I would have wished with Cheney or Bush if they were kidnapped – I hope he doesn’t come back either.

    I’m serious. Engel was foursquare with Netanyahu on trying to hoax the US into a war with Iran.

    Supportive of warcrimes, iow

    • avatar April M says:

      Obama alone, behind the back of Congress & the people interfered, incited, armed & materially helped wage this war in Syria. That’s why Engle was even there. Why not blame Napoleon and Genghis Khan too? You are irrational & ignorant.

  19. avatar Joan Burgess says:

    I look foreward to his reports and thought his last reports were definitely getting into dangerous territory. Hope and pray he is ok.
