This terrible video Show us something very, very terrible...
This remind me from videos from Bagdad, and what Blackwater has done there. Demand investigation - Now! Spread this new video in Facebook, Twitter, by
email - send it to politicians, to media, to your friends... Something deeply bad has just happen with US government car in Cairo, and over 20 has
died or injured by - whom, and why?
Its not stolen - and if it was, demand investigation from tracking and positioning data, movements, what really happened... - There is hundreds of
witnesses, people who saw that killer-driver... US soldier or egyptian civilian? Demand investigation, and cause of US shaking interests - demand
nothing else but truth, and because of the innocent civilians, who died because of some very mad - bad peoples.

Pretty crazy video, disturbing and tragic. That being said, I'm not entirely sure I can fault the driver of that van. They start surrounding the
van, I'm sure not being friendly.
Then, if you watch closely, just before it gets real ugly and all those people get hit, off the driver side it looks like someone threw something
at/in the van...maybe he hit the driver and thus the pull to the right? I feel sorry for the people who got hit and it's definitely tragic, but
would you just sit there and get mobbed? I know I wouldn't, I would do what I felt I had to do to protect my life.
Appalling video but these were stolen cars, and the thefts were reported before these incidents. US diplomats in egypt support the egyptian people and
are fearing for their lives, do you really think they would make matters worse for americans by plowing over 20+ innocent people. C'mon man.
Link to report on theft
I dont see anything, what gives the driver justice to do what he did - He used no horn warn others from his path, he didnt use warning shots, warning
lights - nothing, just drive like mad and people who had no idea, that Van was coming, was just hit and run... Just a terrible crime what is needed to
investigate, nothing else.
Who in there right mind would not put the pedal to the floor with a crowd thats getting violent and throwing Molotov's, surrounding it and being a
lethal threat. I would hit the gas and to hell with the people that are out to get me or are in the way of my escape.

Why in the earth some theft would kill tens of his fellow citizens? Real investigation is not a statement from officials, but by collecting all data
from witnesses and staff - how highly secured Embassy vans has been stolen and where, when and by whom? I assume we would see some videos, where we
can see how and when cars has been stolen inside from highly guarded places... And how about vans movement? Positioning data... How long it takes to
find US embassy vechiles in Cairo - ten minutes, maybe?
Wake up you bastards, If you are from USA - do something - and do it now!
I see no problem with this driver's actions. He obviously did the right thing, he protected those in his charge. When a society has broken down
like it is in Cairo the law of the jungle prevails. Everyone is a potential enemy. Everyone is a threat. By the way, how has the vehicle been
identified as US property?
ok, let's step back a bit from all the hate and try to be objective about this. to point fingers and say that this is a US diplomatic vehicle based
only on the title of the video is stupid and inflammatory at the very least. we were not there and the person who posted the video might have his/her
own agenda for putting it up with such a title.
anyway, here's a search result from youtube that contains the video in
the OP. notice that you'll find the same video as the OP posted 6 times, only one of them has a title which states that it was a US diplomatic
vehicle. so, what do we really know?
just appalled by the lack of sensitivity on the part of some people who would use the deaths of at least 20 protesters to fuel their hate for the

THE USA Embassy reports that they had cars stolen. Makes no sense to me that the Embassy would be shuttling people around during the protests. In my
opinion, the running down of people was done to create anti USA sentiment.
This video is a cut down version of the one in the OP. It looks to me that people were clearing a path for the car.
