    Fox News Engineer Charged With Smuggling
    Wed Apr 23,11:35 AM ET

    By CURT ANDERSON, Associated Press Writer

    WASHINGTON - A television news engineer faces smuggling charges after attempting to bring into the United States 12 stolen Iraqi paintings, monetary bonds and other items, federal officials said Wednesday.


    A criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va., charges that Benjamin James Johnson, 27, tried to bring the paintings into this country last Thursday. They were contained in a large cardboard box that was examined by Customs agents at Dulles International Airport outside Washington.


    An affidavit filed with the criminal complaint says that Johnson, who accompanied U.S. troops in Baghdad, gathered up the paintings at a palace that belonged to Uday Hussein, one of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites)'s sons. The paintings depict Saddam and Uday.


    Johnson, who initially told Customs officials he was given the paintings by Iraqi citizens, said he had planned to keep them "for decoration" and to provide one to his employer, the affidavit says. It is U.S. policy that all such items belong to the Iraqi people.


    Johnson worked for six years as a satellite truck engineer for Fox News Channel, which fired him after learning he had admitted to taking the paintings, a network statement said.


    "This is an unfortunate incident and his supervisor took the appropriate action for this transgression," the statement added.


    The case was one of several to be detailed later Wednesday by Customs officials, who have seized other Iraqi artworks, weapons and other materials people have tried to smuggle into this country.


    Museums, businesses, government offices and homes were widely looted in Baghdad after the fall of Saddam's regime. Among the items stolen were thousands of artworks and other antiquities, some thousands of years old, from Iraq (news - web sites)'s vast collections of items from Assyrian, Mesopotamian, Sumerian and other cultures.


    An examination of Johnson's luggage also turned up 40 Iraqi Monetary Bonds and a visitor's badge from the U.S. embassy in Kuwait. Johnson, who lives in Alexandria, Va., has not been arrested but is to appear before a federal magistrate next Tuesday.

    well then i guess all postal workers are nut jobs, and the united postal service is also waiting to stage a huge attak.


    yeah right......

    why do all you donkeys forget about terms like "stero-typing", when a situation fits your agenda?

    1) from a dirty fucker? are all iraqis dirty now? besides, priceless items from the iraqi museum were looted in our 'liberation'...burning the libraries of babylon... there is no justification for that.

    2) fox news is already a bad news station. if you get your news from fox news, you are probably a lost cause by now. it's owned by neo-con rupert murdoch, and repeatedly shoves pro-war everything down your throat. it's the most lopsided crap on tv, and that's saying a lot, considering all the major news networks are doing the same thing. and it's not what they show you, it's what they don't. anything that could possibly show a negative side to the war is left out. they let no left-wing experts on the show..... they'll have like 4 aggressive hawks debating against a single novice democrat reporter, or they'll air pro-war crap from democratic senators. democrats and republicans are the same sacks of shit to me, by the way.
