AP Pulitzer prize winning journalist, Bilal Hussein, denied Constitutional rights
This is why so many Americans are frightened at the denial of Habeas Corpus to “enemy combatants”. The military, under the direction of overzealous leaders can abuse the power and deny an American his constitutional protected rights.
The Pentagon says additional evidence has come to light proving Bilal Hussein is a “terrorist media operative” who infiltrated the news agency. The case will be passed to Iraqi judges who will decide if he should be tried. AP says its own investigation has found no evidence that he was anything but an Iraqi journalist working in a war zone. The agency’s lawyers say they have been denied access to Mr Hussein and the evidence against him, making it impossible to build a defense.
This man, a Pulitzer prize winning journalist, has been under custody for providing shelter to random strangers. The Pentagon calls this a security threat and danger to our military and they’ve promised evidence of the threat. This kind of reminds me of the slam dunk evidence that President Bush had that sent us to war,.. and didn’t exist?
p.s. In case you’re an idiot, there was no slam dunk evidence, it was a lie.
