I don’t exactly know what to do with this. Anyone who thinks this is a coincidence just hasn’t been paying enough attention to the workings of our government lately.

American troops in Baghdad yesterday blasted their way into the home of an Iraqi journalist working for the Guardian and Channel 4, firing bullets into the bedroom where he was sleeping with his wife and children.
Ali Fadhil, who two months ago won the Foreign Press Association young journalist of the year award, was hooded and taken for questioning. He was released hours later. — “US troops seize award-winning Iraqi journalist” (January 9, 2006) The Guardian.

The videotapes he had shot for a Channel 4 Dispatches program proving that the tens of millions of dollars have been stolen and misused by American and British corporations have, however, not been returned.

????Special thanks to Mark King for sending me the link to the Guardian story referenced in this article. I’ve got to wonder, however, how much longer he’s going to be allowed to wander free if he doesn’t quit telling people about this.
