Andrea Mitchell Blogs: Two Sudanese Security Guards “Grabbed Me From Behind & Started Pulling Me Out The Door”

mitchell2july21.jpgFollowing up on this post, NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell blogs on The Daily Nightly about being roughed up in Sudan:

…”So by the time we finally did get in, there were Sudanese officials saying, “Don’t ask any questions,” and American officials saying, “No agreements. No deals.” And we went in, and I asked President el-Bashir why, in essence, anyone should believe his promises when his government has said repeatedly that it will stop the violence and then it continues to support the militias that are doing the killing. At which point two guys came up behind me, two of his armed security guards, and grabbed me from behind and started pulling me out the door. I tried to keep my balance so that I didn’t go down. And they shoved me out the door. Rice was furious…She said she was very sorry that it happened and that she had demanded an apology from the Sudanese government…”
