Ethiopia: Mercenaries Sent by the Eritrean Regime Captured and Killed at the Ethio Eritrea Border!
On hindsight ESAT and G7 folks may have been trying to preempt the potentially embarrassing result in the "battle field" when they announced about the breaking news of battle success! But, as we told you earlier we were waiting for second source confirmation. Fanabc has now confirmed our earlier unverified news! The news is, a leader was killed and another leader captured along with few others. In fact six of the captured were handed over by their immediate family members after they sought shelter in their house. Apparently the foot soldiers were sent by force and were unwilling participants in G7 and Company fiasco! See Also : ABC News:30 Armed People Killed on Eritrea Border

Ethiopia releases imprisoned journalist Reeyot Alemu
New York, July 9, 2015--The Committee to Protect Journalists welcomes the release from prison today of Ethiopian journalist Reeyot Alemu, a critical columnist who has been jailed since June 2011 on terrorism charges.
If CPJ and company were genuine and honest in their criticism of the Ethiopian government they would have recognized the government was really struggling between keeping law and order and developing and helping the private media to play its role properly all along. However CPJ was accusing the government regardless! The government has been lenient and was looking the other way on former derge officials, opposition leaders and journalist who were more politicians in the past! In fact some who were released in the name of promoting democratic culture of tolerance and free speech are now advocates of war and mayhem from Asmara! We can only hope the current good will gesture by the government will be rewarded by CPJ and partners!

A Teachable Moment for Ethio-Americans on July 4, 2015

Al Mariam stands to defend Henock of VOA and condemns the mob that was demonstrating on July 2nd! He seems to be distancing himself from Birhanu’s mob actions. We have been wondering why some of the learned men and women, be it from Harvard or Maryland Univ, promote such inept political leaders from the extremists in Diaspora for so long! Is Al-Mariam distancing himself for selfish reasons so his life is not disrupted as it it has been ever since he arrived to the USA or he is for real mad at Berhanu and company who are orchestrating such foolish acts in DC!
