Detained CBS Journalist Released from Abu Ghraib

CBS cameraman Abdul Ameer Younis Hussein was detained by US forces for one year after they claimed he had tested positive for explosive residue and that images in his camera linked him to the insurgents. He was released last week after a court found no convincing evidence to this allegation.

[W]hile he was in Abu Ghraib, he was subject to very vigorous interrogation sessions, going 18 to 20 hours, usually beginning at 2:00 in the morning. And there was an attempt made to break him, to get him to make or sign confessions that he was a terrorist, and at the end of one of these interrogation sessions, he was told, “We don’t accept what you’re saying, and we’re going to put you in solitary confinement forever, until you break and sign a statement confessing to being a terrorist.” He was held, in fact, for two days in solitary confinement, which is completely illegal.

    So whatda expect…Bush is out there saying “…good job, Rummy…”while Military Officers THAT WERE ACTUALLY DEPLOYED in Iraq are saying the whole thing is a cocked-up mess… stay tuned for more crap to hit the fan … the Republicans have plenty of rope … just sit back and watch them hang themselves.
