The word here is that U.S. Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman was just forced out of LAU-Beirut campus by a student protest. I just heard the screaming and saw the embassy cars speed away. I will confirm or deny this report once I get more details.
If this is true, Feltman would go down as the first person in the History of this esteemed university to be refused admittance.
It seems Feltman's team outwitted the LAU students and made it to his scheduled event .
Here's what some witnesses said.
Student #1: "I saw some people protesting. I didn't know what they were protesting, but I joined them."
Student #2: "I saw some people protesting. I didn't know what they were protesting. I wanted to join them, but I realized it was all guys, so I skipped it."
Student #3(My sister): "Huh? What? Why? I was sleeping in class and heard some noise."
Student #4: "We showed the Americans!.... that they can't come in through this gate unless they push us out of the way."
Jeffrey Feltman: "Democracy."
