NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel missing in Syria

quote:

NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel has gone missing in Syria, according to Turkish news reports. The reports also say that Aziz Akyavas, a Turkish journalist working with Engel, is unaccounted for. NBC News has been successfully keeping Engel's status subject to a news blackout—one to which Gawker agreed until now—for at least the past 24 hours.

Turkish newspaper Hurriyet is reporting that Engel and Akyavas were last known to be in Syria and haven't been in contact with NBC News since Thursday morning. The news has been reported widely in the Turkish press over the past 24 hours, including by Turkish news channel NTV, which presents itself as an international partner of MSNBC. It's also been widely distributed on Twitter.

I hope he ends up ok. Guy does dangerous work and is, by all accounts, a very good journalist.

I do not feel bad for any of those stupid journalists who try and make themselves part of the story by being in the middle of these war zones. Just stupid.

Wouldn't Assad's government be at least as likely?


I would lean heavily toward the Al-Qaeda backed Obama insurgents, they have done the majority of the executions and beheadings in Syria to date.

Hopefully they're not planning to cut his head off.

Unfortunately, if they have him this is probably their plan.

Well Obama is exactly the best President to go missing under. He'll probaly send out a stern warning.

dude, Obama has been a cold blooded killer when it comes to terrorists. Dude has taken Israel's Munich style of justice to another level.

Why? Can someone explain how a news blackout helps the situation?

1. it may have been a miscommunication or technical error

2. respect for the family

3. the most crucial time to find people is immediately after they disappear. you need reliable information in order to accurately assess this information gathering. when stories like this get out, information gets muddled

4. he may be kidnapped and there may have been some sort of contact
