Feltman kicked out of LAU

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.

UPDATE:
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."

Campus protesters: as "smart and chic" as their French cousins in the streets (then and now, here and there).

Feltman managed to reach "wherever", dropped some cash, and screamed what amounted to: Lebanese must take up their "fate" into their own hands. While leaving the boys had their hands on their "fates" while screaming f**! u Filtman!

My sources tell me the greasy rat was running like a cowardly chicken-hawk!
A fitting bestial metaphor for the future of the neocon movement…

I was there and the cars at first had dificulty getting in. I know a few leftists who protested, so not all were HezbAllah supporters, although quite a number of them were chanting about 1559...

PS N°2: as I have said earlier/elsewhere, Jamie is decidedly a Latter Days Voltairian genius of sorts!

And, to use a backwardly Bedouin Ayyrabzian metaphor I love, his refreshing voice is like a luminous oasis of wisdom in the arid desert of Lebanese blogs where Neocon hyenas and Trotskyite trolls howl hollowly in the dark or something.

So Jamie boy, faster please! as a famous Pharisaic thinker said in a totally different context…
