Human Rights Watch emergency director Peter Bouckaert told The Washington Post that police identification cards were found on several wounded looters that broke in to Cairo's Egyptian Museum.


The looters had police identification cards on them. Unless they are forgeries or do not match up with the looter's face, I would say this is clear cut evidence that this desecration against a priceless artifact was done in incite violence in the population, by the police.

probably just a plot for a few of the low payed police to get rich, they will have contacts through their work and are probably corrupt as hell. there is no proof linking this to the president but he could be behind it but i think corrupt police sound more likely imo.

from the info ive read, it was the meuseums own security guards who looted the place.
They get payed very little, and the police conscripts even less.
This report i read earlier today in my travels but connot supply a link....it would not be surprising however....

Do you have a source please? They found police ID on the looters, so unless the police were taking their day job as a museum guard rather than controlling the riots then they could not have been museum workers, and if they are just cops "guarding" the museum, they did a criminal job.
