US nationals arrested in restricted area of Suez Canal

This is a curious bit of news-

Egypt's military on Monday detained four U.S. nationals in the northern city of Suez after they took photographs in a restricted zone by the Suez Canal, a military official said.

"Three US nationals and their translator, a U.S.-Egyptian dual citizen, were detained in the Port Tawfiq harbor," the official said, without identifying them.

"Residents of Suez had seen the four taking pictures and informed the military authorities. They are not reporters for any media and did not have permission to take photographs," the official said.


Ok so they are not reporters- Then who are they? Why the pictures?
Oh and how did they get access to restricted areas?


Wondering, had the locals not seen them taking pictures in the restricted area, would the army have "detained" them? You notice the article does not say arrested?
The Egyptian army is controlled by the US so I have my doubts anything will come of this.
As this next story confirms......

American news is covering this as journalists being arrested covering protests in the area.

Video producer Jason Mojica -- a former Al Jazeera journalist and his two man crew, unnamed. Along with Sherif Helwa -- an Egyptian-American energy consultant reporting for Platts, an information provider in the energy and metals industries.
When arrested the men claimed they were filming for Al Jazeera.
Though Jason Mojica is no longer employed by Al Jazeera.

CNN claims they were working for VICE magazine's online website.
So why did they not have the proper VICE ID?
The claim made by CNN is non-credible. Quite frankly CNN can make any bogus unsubstantiated claim they want.

Spook Alert!


Hmmm, pseudo journalists and energy consultants, where have I seen that before?

SYRIA!- Two American nationals, one having citizenship in Egypt a "journalist/energy consultant. Except in Syria the man's name was Radwan.

"Radwan, who also holds American nationality, had for the past nine months been working in Damascus as director of Petrographics,a petroleum services company that has branches in several Arab countries. (Under cover of a petroleum services company, interesting?)

This article identifies Mohamed Radwan as a blogger from Egypt "Syria accuses Egyptian blogger of spying for Israel"

So is Radwan a blogger, a journalist or does he work for Petrographics??"
Radwan = Helwa. If Helwa was employed by VICE why did he speak to CNN to reassure them it was all a misunderstanding?

This is where the story gets even "spookier"-


"CNN was able to speak to Helwa (the Egyptian-American journalist/ energy consultant) by phone while in custody, before his phone was confiscated.

"We were arrested around 3 p.m., but they are treating us well and it's all just a misunderstanding," said Helwa.

It's all just a misunderstanding? Filming in a restricted area of the Suez Canal?

A misunderstanding?

As I asked earlier had the sharp eyed citizens of Egypt not caught these obvious spooks, would the army have bothered to "detain" them, in this "misunderstanding"?

  3. to anonymous 932 am

    If they were why did they show Al Jazeera id?
    Why did they give an exclusive to CNN?
    Additionally if they really were journalist for VICE as you claim, setting aside all that I mentioned above..
    How does that not mean they are spies or spooks?

    Spies as journalists
    Journalist as spies.
    They are not mutually exclusive
    Spooks as "journalists"
    "Journalists" as spooks
    Nothing new under the sun there.

    So are you here to reinforce the "official" fabrication?

  7. Regarding NYSC's comment on the Israeli "operative" in Egypt, I scooted over and found this posted

    http://www.kawther.info/wpr/2011/06/13/mossadnik-captured-in-egypt-involved-in-pipeline-blast-video

    The Egyptian authorities and the state news agency revealed on Sunday June 12 2011 that they have arrested Ilan Chaim Grappelli/Grapel, (אילן גרפל ), known in Israel as Ilan Goren (אילן גורן), an American-Israeli Mossad agent, a war criminal who participated in the atrocities of the Lebanon “second war” in 2006, and a former paratrooper soldier who had infiltrated the Egyptian revolutionists and was causing trouble, spying on the military and the revolutionaries, photographing people and reporting to the Mossad, distributing money to some Egyptians and recruiting them in order to cause chaos, to steal and to sabotage public infrastructure in the country. Grappelli had also been organizing a series of protest movements and preparing them to disobey orders of the military authorities after the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak. (Click on the picture to make it bigger).

    According to Egyptian authorities, judge Hesham Badawi of the supreme state security prosecution ordered the detention of the israeli spy for 15 days for pending investigations into his alleged spying on Egypt with the aim of sabotaging and harming its economic and political interests. The israeli mossad spy was arrested at a famous hotel in Cairo with a laptop and three mobile phone
