The situation for ancient sites in Lower Egypt continues to be of concern with two storage warehouses at Giza looted on Monday. I have consolidated the links for the reports onto the Giza page of the Looting Database.  In the first report (NY Times interview), Dr Hawass says he is unable to keep sites safe and is considering resignation.

It is almost unbelievable.
How can Hawass earnestly say that nothing had happened during the days of unrest when everybody knows about the beak-ins and that he had withheld the truth from the public.
Just recently he had declared that he is the one to protect Egypt`s heritage, and now he admits being unable to do so and talks of resigning. Maybe he should make good of his promise. But it is just as possible that in a few days he will be once more the only one who can save the antiquities.
The man makes too many shifts.

So are you calling him shifty?
