Ungrateful Foreigner Fahmy Says Prime Minister Abandoned Him

Fahmy says he feels ‘euphoric’ after release from Egyptian jail

“When you’re there (in prison), your only hope is that your prime minister will do everything in his power to get you out of there. Our prime minister delegated his responsibility to people who lacked the clout to really get me out of there,” Fahmy said during the news conference.

“Sitting in that prison cell, it was difficult not to feel betrayed and abandoned by Prime Minister Harper,” he added.

STFU and leave.

    The people suggested that Mohammy stay in his home country, and the Prime Minister was implimenting their advice.

    “He said he wants to one day return to reporting in the Middle East,
    including from Egypt. “My intention is to report anywhere in the world
    anytime I want and I will be hoping to report again in Egypt,” he said,
    before adding, “but not right away, “

      And of course he will want the Canadian taxpayer to pick up the tab for his stupidity. This is why dual citizenship’s should be banned.

    he was only in Canada for a couple of weeks in his whole life why should we care except that if he interfered in Egyptian politics the way the CBC has facilitated for him here in Canada , i can easily understand why the Egyptians threw him in jail.
    he is a boorish tourist

    What did he expect the Prime Minister to do – send in the Canadian equivalent of the Navy Seals to break him out of prison and whisk him out of Egypt?

      I had an old boss that said when your house is on fire you don’t call the mayor you call the fire chief.

        Except Cretien disbanded the Airbourne in 1995.

          The point is that when you get stuck in a situation like that it is not the Prime Minister’s job to pick up the phone and lobby to get you out.
          It’s down to the people who do that for a living.
          There’s this thing called the chain of command.

            And that is no doubt what happened – just that this particularly ungrateful accidental Canadian is a leftie journalist and so deserving of – in the eyes of the MSM – much more. Note they never say what.

            Not like there isn’t a precedent.
            When a Canadian murders people in the States and gets sentenced to death they are all over it.
            It’s not right that our government should be expected to intervene in the affairs of another country when their laws are clearly known to the perpetrator of such crimes.
            I will make an exception for people who get turned into drug mules without their knowledge.

    Can’t expect anything else from a person that is only a Canadian when it is convenient for him. So when is he going to sue the Canadian government? When the hell is this country going to smarten up?

    • Canadian

      Oh he`ll sue, be sure of that!

  • simus1

    So who got you out, jerk?
    Shiny Pony and Red Crescent, S&S?

    One of the things you never want to do when negotiating with many foreign govts is to give them the impression of overvaluing the “disputed merchandise” they have locked away. It the Canadian negotiator’s opposite number starts to get the impression that what they have back in the cells is much more than just a turd in a bucket, things can get very expensive and very slow, very fast. Even in this case it is likely that Canada is using up valuable IOUs that could have been better used elsewhere for a nobler purpose.

    He was released thanks to behind the scene work on his behalf by Canadian diplomats.

  • Canadian

    I`m sure turdeau would have gotten him out much faster!

    • Yep, the same way that Chretien got Omar Khadr out of Guantanamo, when he was actually still a 15 year-old with peach fuzz.

      Oops, scratch that — it was Harper who got Khadr out of Guantanamo. I think Khadr was already about 25 by then. Nice Jihadi beard too.

      • mobuyus

        Chretien got omar’s dad out of a pakistani jail by going there and begging the government to release the vile piece of shit. The vile piece of shit was later killed in a gun-fight with paki security forces. Something to do with the humanitarian work he was so selflessly carrying out.

  • Ken

    He got himself into jail, and our government got him out. A thank you would be nice.

  • WalterBannon

    I am disappointed that Egypt did not behead him

  • Clink9

    What a whiner.

    He was mommy in prison.

  • Everyone Else

    these muslim whiners suck all the air out of canada

    any other garden-variety complainers haven’t a chance against these professional victims

    canada ain’t canada no more
