In a letter to Israeli officials, producer says legendary anchorman's crew held up for hours at security checks, strip-searched before interview with Deputy PM Meridor Associated Press

A crew for Dan Rather was harassed and humiliated by Israeli security officials, a producer for his show has said, accusing them of forcing the staffers to drop their pants for a strip search before seeing a Cabinet minister.

 

The allegations, made in a letter to Israeli officials that was obtained by The Associated Press, add to growing complaints about how Israeli security officials treat foreign media.

 

Andrew Glazer, an Emmy-award winning producer at Dan Rather Reports, wrote that the legendary anchorman came to do a story about improving Israeli-Palestinian relations pitched by Israel's Foreign Ministry.

 

Glazer said problems mounted after they arrived. He said they were held up for hours at security checks. Israeli soldiers barred the crew's veteran Palestinian cameramen — a Jerusalem resident — from accompanying Rather to a West Bank neighborhood. And then came the strip search before an interview with Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor.

 

"Mr. Rather said that in his career, he had never seen a crew forced to strip prior to an interview — including the one he conducted with Saddam Hussein," Glazer wrote.

It's  fine  if  it  belongs  to  this  SITE!!!  Bar  Codes  are  not  meant  to  be  "shared".  It  is  there  for

the  individual  cell  phones  -  not  the  Internet.

That  Icon  at  the  right  is  a  BAR  CODE.  Don't  EVER  give  your  BAR  CODE  OUT  to  anyone.  Or

you'll  be  sorry.  Your  cell  phone  bill  will  be  unbelievable!!!  (It  is  the  black  &  white;  maze  like

square  box  you  see  on  this  page).....

Dropping  your  pants  is  part  of  a  strip  search.  According  to  "Prison  Rules".  It's  called  in  the

Prison  System  as  a  "body  cavity  search"  -  Must  be  horrible!!!

How  humliating  for  them.  That  could  have  been  avoided  if  Bush  hadn't  started  this  and

gotten  involved  in  this  WAR!!!  Just  couldn't  keep  out  of  it...  That's  where  American  tax  dollars  went  and  not  to  the  needy  and  homeless  in  the  U.S.  How  can  I  say  I  "Like  This"  when  the  Americans  are  strip  searching  &  fondling  their  own  PEOPLE  (and  children).  What

goes  around  -  comes  around!!!

Dan Rather and crew are so NWO and if theiw story was on anything else you would be the first to say so.

I say this is love and in respect.
