American STEPHEN GREATSINGER (Khmer440 Member 'BSCW') Arrested in Cambodia After US Embassy Threats

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

He seems to have at least ONE friend left in the world, well at least a Facebook friend. Better than nothing.

Instead of posting inane drivel though (I mean the Facebook poster, obviously), why not spend your time on motivating the US authorities to speed up his deportation? Or doesn't he want to go home for some reason?

That's insane. There are a few embassies you could probably get away with jumping into for at least a few minutes (Cuban/ German/ Pakistani). The Chinese, French and especially US ones are not advisable! The French Embassy has probably got the nicest forested grounds in the city, they have open days. Otherwise the Legionnaires guarding it might not be much fun to encounter. As far as I know the US embassy is guarded by Marines.
Agreed. US Embassies often operate in hostile parts of the world and often are the target of protests and suicide bombers. Physical security, gates, barriers, etc., tend to be a lot more common.

Security is often handled locally, aka Khmer guards at the US embassy at the front and the outer perimeter. There are only 3-5 marines posted. Usually patrolling sensitive areas such as the ambassador’s living quarters, CIA annex, etc.

Plus there is a marine guard quick reaction force that can deploy anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice to reinforce any embassy in trouble.

Of course the force can be also told not to deploy by the Secretary of State or the President and let the ambassador get killed.
I don't get what all the fuss is about. BSCW has been threatening the US Embassy and staff, and now we're the gossipy bad guys for talking about it. When you climb an embassy wall, especially after making all the threats to them like BSCW has, I'd expect nothing less than to be met with a guard brandishing a gun at you. Seems reasonable to me.

But in Cambodia this should be expected and in my eyes , praised , everybody in the world is not “normall” ,

If he picked his own handle instead of being assigned it you see it as it is , as self destpription or outside observer description
... as needing something , then ok .
Now in hindsight don’t you see it as a call for help ? I would love to change my name day by day
There are good days and bad days .


I am very busy watching CNN squirm / worry . .. maybe about losing hair .
