Richard Engel missing in Syria since last ((((Thursday))) !!!


NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel, one of the most prominent and accomplished international correspondents in the world, is reportedly missing in Syria.
Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reports that Engel, together with Turkish journalist Aziz Akyavaş, were last known to be in Syria and haven't been in contact with NBC News since Thursday morning.
While the Turkish media have been circulating the report for several days, American outlets had been operating under a news blackout requested by NBC until today.

Richard walks dead center into every revolutions, gives us the facts, emotions at the time.

11. War correspondents know the danger, and many of them just keep going

until they cannot

It's an addiction for them, I fear...

5. Jeremy Scahill responds.

There are processes going on that other media are not privy to and you should respect that. It could mean life/death for the missing journo

The desire to get a "scoop" should be put in check when there are very good reasons--namely the lives of our colleagues-- to stay quiet
jeremy scahill (@jeremyscahill) December 17, 2012
There are cases where the families/employers ask for coverage. There are actual strategies at play and that should be respected.

7. I hope Richard and Aziz are OK

I'll bet Rachel Maddow is pretty upset, she seems to have a great working relationship with Richard, and I know he escorted her around the Middle East when she was over there.
