Sam LaHood, a senior representative of the U.S. International Republican Institute and the son of U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, has been prevented from leaving Egypt, State Department officials said Thursday.
LaHood, who directs the International Republican Institute's office in Egypt, went to the Cairo airport on Saturday to fly somewhere "in the region," said an institute official with knowledge of the matter who asked not to be named because of the sensitivity of the matter.
An airport official told him he was banned from traveling outside Egypt, the official said, though LaHood was not told why.
The incident comes amid heightened tensions between Egyptian authorities and several international non-governmental organizations that work in Egypt.FULL STORY
This is a farce!
The incident comes amid heightened tensions between Egyptian authorities and several international non-governmental organizations that work in Egypt.
Lahood IS part of a Governmental agency; what does he have to do with the IN-FIGHTING?
Your screen name is offensive, and you are a dick.
Slave labour. They're going to force him to build pyramids.
Well, it looks like the CIA fronts have been discovered. When the Egyptian authorities performed their raids on the "international non-governmental organiztions", they obviously got more information than we wanted them to.
What exactly was Lahood's mission there? Any inkling?
Why doesn't he just pretend to be Jewish. They'll let him leave, no problem. BDUMP-BUMP.
Hey, thank you. I'm here all week. Try the veal.
Who is writing for "Retarded Child"? Clearly, this person is neither a child, nor retarded.
No, but he is childish, and there is something else wrong with him.
