The US is now the sixth worst jailor of journalists in the world, alongside Burma. Burma.
One of these days we're going to wake up, and realise that our collective apathy has allowed a once great nation to destroy itself, and what it stands for, and in so doing corrupt the ideals for which we stand. The poor guy in this case was denied all due process, and even when the court said (after a year in prison) that there was no case to answer, the guy was thrown back in jail anyway.
I don't honestly believe that these guys, the US guys, I mean, have actually stood away from the battlefield and looked at what they have done to themselves, to what it means to be an American. Such greatness, such wisdom, such intelligence, squandered. Shame.
