No More Civis Romanus: the protection with which Americans assume their country is surrounded by is -- or was at least in this instance -- a sham.

I'm probably completely wrong, but I've heard the CIA tells you, first thing, there may be no help coming no matter how many times you call.

Nice try Dick. The Med has been crawling with haze grey floating armor for decades, particularly on the East end. Who knows what lurks beneath the waves. I can only imagine the array of flying machines capable of a 13 hour flight in the modern era. A question of will more than ability, I'd guess.

I still cannot believe that no help was sent. Would help arrive in time? Nobody knows, but you have to send help and make the attempt. What would the Russians have done? What would the Israelis have done? Pathetic.

Still cannot believe? I find that hard to believe. The cover up story of the YouTube video took more energy than to pick up the phone and order help.
