It's Terrifying And Ominous That Egypt Is Now Rounding Up Journalists, Blocking Video, And Keeping Out Aid Workers


It’s hard to see how to interpret this in a way that’s not ominous.

All morning there have been reports of journalists being rounded up by the government in Egypt.

Now there’s no live video that we can find.

Al-Jazeera is also reporting that Amnesty International Workers have been blocked from the main square.

A foreigner was also beaten to death, according to Al-Jazeera.

If the army were going to make a serious push to quash the protesters under the cloak of media darkness, now would be the time.
