"Reporters Without Borders condemned Wednesday the Iraqi government's continuing legal offensive against independent news media, which for the first time is also targeting Internet media.

As a result of a lawsuit brought by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a Baghdad court ordered the Iraqi news website Kitabat to pay 1 billion dinars (630,000 euros) in damages on 18 May.

Although based in Germany, Kitabat uses reports provided by many correspondents inside Iraq and the ruling threatens its ability to continuing operating."

The so-called Sunni Awakening, in which American forces formed tactical alliances with local sheikhs, has been credited with dampening the insurgency in much of Iraq. But new evidence suggests that the Sunnis were offering the same deal as early as 2004—one that was eagerly embraced by commanders on the ground, but rejected out of hand at the highest levels of the Bush administration.
by David Rose May 12, 2009
What the history books should also record, revealed here for the first time, is that the Sunni insurgents had offered to come to terms with the Americans 30 months earlier, in the summer of 2004, during secret talks with senior U.S. officials and military commanders.

US Colonel Advocates US 'Military Attacks' on 'Partisan Media' in Essay for Neocon, Pro-Israel Group JINSA

By Jeremy Scahill

In the era of embedded media, independent journalists have become the eyes and ears of the world. Without those un-embedded journalists willing to risk their lives to place themselves on the other side of the barrel of the tank or the gun or under the airstrikes, history would be written almost entirely from the vantage point of powerful militaries, or—at the very least—it would be told from the perspective of the troops doing the shooting, rather than the civilians who always pay the highest price.

In the case of the Iraq invasion and occupation, the journalists who have placed themselves in danger most often are local Iraqi journalists. Some 116 Iraqi journalists and media workers have been killed in the line of duty since March 2003. In all, 189 journalists have been killed in Iraq. At least 16 of these journalists were killed by the US military, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. The network that has most often found itself under US attack is Al Jazeera. As I wrote a few years ago in The Nation:

The United States bombed its offices in Afghanistan in 2001, shelled the Basra hotel where Al Jazeera journalists were the only guests in April 2003, killed Iraq correspondent Tareq Ayoub a few days later in Baghdad and imprisoned several Al Jazeera reporters (including at Guantánamo), some of whom say they were tortured. In addition to the military attacks, the US-backed Iraqi government banned the network from reporting in Iraq.-Jeremy Scahill

"Although it seems unthinkable now, future wars may require censorship, news blackouts and, ultimately, military attacks on the partisan media. Perceiving themselves as superior beings, journalists have positioned themselves as protected-species combatants. But freedom of the press stops when its abuse kills our soldiers and strengthens our enemies. Such a view arouses disdain today, but a media establishment that has forgotten any sense of sober patriotism may find that it has become tomorrow’s conventional wisdom." -retired US Army Colonel Ralph Peters

Video (8 min): Obama promises to suspend Habeas Corpus: Rachel Maddow points out that in Obama's national security speech yesterday, he proposes to replace Guantanamo-style detention without trial with his own detention without trial, a system he calls "Indefinite Preventative Detention" through which people who are believed to be likely to commit a crime at some point in the future can be locked up forever without charge, trial, jury or appeal.

Nasrallah: Israel may be preparing for war: Less than three weeks before Lebanon's hotly contested election, Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah warned his people on Monday night that a five-day IDF exercise scheduled to start at the end of the month could mean the Jewish state is preparing for "a new and unexpected war."

Israel "is the main reason for all the wars and calamities... and tensions and crises in the region," he said.

Obama and Netanyahu: up close and personal (Steve Bell at his best!!!)
 
Torture and 9/11: If Mr. Obama were to take a deep breath, look back and take a lesson from some of America’s darkest days, here’s what he would find:

The Iraq invasion was conceived long before 9/11 which was simply used as a pretext for achieving ‘full spectrum domination’ of land, sea, air, space, and cyberspace as outlined in The Project for a New American Century, of which Dick Cheney was a founding member, and President Bush a willing dupe. The goal was nothing short of attempted world domination, and Iraq and Afghanistan were pawns on a list which included Syria and Iran. PNAC spoke longingly of a ‘new Pearl Harbor event’ as a catalyst to galvanize fearful American opinion to allow the former to have its way, which is exactly what happened after 9/11 (and don’t forget that mailed weaponized Lawrence Livermore anthrax, that ‘bonus terror’ that hurried the Patriot Act unread through Congress and that was since so conveniently blamed on a dead guy).

An investigation would reveal (indeed we already know) that torture was employed to establish a false link between Saddam and al Quieda in order to make a preconceived invasion more acceptable to the American people. (Lots of troops in Iraq still think that Saddam was responsible for 9/11, and still exact bloody revenge against innocent people.)

Since everything the people were told turned out to be lies, questions would inevitably arise regarding the ‘catalyst’ itself, the new Pearl Harbor event so useful to PNAC and the Bush Administration.

This, I submit is what officials in the Obama Administration fear the most. An investigation of torture would inevitably lead to questions about what 9/11 was really about.
 
The Official 24-7 Nabka Virtual Celebration Site: I will honor and celebrate The Nabka whenever I can remember to do so. I will especially do so on May 15th of every year that follows, so long as I am here and so long as the Zio-Nazi regime continues to destroy Palestinian land; burn their crops, bulldoze their homes, rape and torture their people and kill them for sport and hegemonic enterprise. One with a conscience must ask themselves; when does the madness reach its limit?

Their holocaust has long since been reduced to a tawdry business operation, including a Division of Lies and a Division of Blackmail. It’s just one more runaway corporation whose product is bullshit in colorful packaging… sugar and shit spun together in a monstrous confection for those lacking both intelligence and taste. It no longer matters to me that there are so many inconsistencies in the official story that is constantly contradicted by other official sources and just as often by their own sources. I am tired of hearing about it at all. I have holocaust fatigue and am seriously considering suing the nation of Israel for their responsibility in giving me this condition.

Israel has been a murdering, genocidal mad-dog since the day it began and has been at the cause of just about every incident of unrest throughout the Middle East. Let me further state that the two major wars that Israel engaged in were… neither of them… in response to an attack but were both preemptive assaults upon their neighbors. In one of these instances they attacked an American ship with the intention of causing a war between Russia and the U.S. They are also the primary force behind the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq and the sole instigator of war against Iran. They are a demonic entity with no justification for existence.

It’s now becoming clear that they were behind the murder of Prime Minister Hariri. It’s acceptable to assume they are engaged in a war against the rest of humanity and that Israel was created solely to give a certain group of people a sovereign nation whose purpose was to loot the wealth of the nations of the world and to build an enormous military presence to destroy their neighbors and anyone else they don’t like which is anyone else but them.

The world has had enough of Israel’s cynical behavior from the extermination of the Palestinian People; to their blackmailing the world’s food industry for Kosher Nostra Tax, their roving death squads, their torture teams in Iraq and elsewhere, their meddling in the governments of every other nation, their involvement in Sudan and with the Somali Pirates as well as their presence in illegal drug and human trafficking… the list is long.

The boycotting of Israeli goods is making its presence felt and we have to make it our business to look for the 729 in the bar codes of every product that we do not buy; buying only the products that do not bear this number and remaining alert to when they change this number to something else or create an alternative number with which to evade the righteous distaste of the public for anything and everything they make.

Many people these days talk about the Illuminati and the Zionist control of the manifest world via the larger vehicles of the formerly great nations of the Earth. All power comes from a single source and they only have what power they have for as long as it is allowed to them. Once it is cut off, they will have none. Their armies will turn upon them and each other. Their fortunes will disappear, their control will vanish and they will be destroyed or scattered to the winds. Let those who are fearful or complacent continue for their brief hour because it is all coming to an end.

I celebrate The Nabka and no one can change this. ...

"TECHNOLOGY, BUSINESS AND OUR WAY OF LIFE: WHAT'S NEXT" (September 26, 2001) : There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world.

It was able to create a continental super-state that stretched from ocean to ocean, and from northern climes to tropics and deserts. Within its dominion lived hundreds of millions of people, of different creeds and ethnic origins.

One of its languages became the universal language of much of the world, the bridge between the peoples of a hundred lands. Its armies were made up of people of many nationalities, and its military protection allowed a degree of peace and prosperity that had never been known. The reach of this civilization’s commerce extended from Latin America to China, and everywhere in between.

And this civilization was driven more than anything, by invention. Its architects designed buildings that defied gravity. Its mathematicians created the algebra and algorithms that would enable the building of computers, and the creation of encryption. Its doctors examined the human body, and found new cures for disease. Its astronomers looked into the heavens, named the stars, and paved the way for space travel and exploration.

Its writers created thousands of stories. Stories of courage, romance and magic. Its poets wrote of love, when others before them were too steeped in fear to think of such things.

When other nations were afraid of ideas, this civilization thrived on them, and kept them alive. When censors threatened to wipe out knowledge from past civilizations, this civilization kept the knowledge alive, and passed it on to others.

While modern Western civilization shares many of these traits, the civilization I’m talking about was the Islamic world from the year 800 to 1600, which included the Ottoman Empire and the courts of Baghdad, Damascus and Cairo, and enlightened rulers like Suleiman the Magnificent.

Although we are often unaware of our indebtedness to this other civilization, its gifts are very much a part of our heritage. The technology industry would not exist without the contributions of Arab mathematicians. Sufi poet-philosophers like Rumi challenged our notions of self and truth. Leaders like Suleiman contributed to our notions of tolerance and civic leadership.

And perhaps we can learn a lesson from his example: It was leadership based on meritocracy, not inheritance. It was leadership that harnessed the full capabilities of a very diverse population–that included Christianity, Islamic, and Jewish traditions.

This kind of enlightened leadership — leadership that nurtured culture, sustainability, diversity and courage — led to 800 years of invention and prosperity.

America's Nightmare: The Obama Dystopia; Manipulation, propaganda, imagery & PR wizardry -
The President that extended the hand of peace to the Muslim world has murdered hundreds of Pakistani men, women and children. The President who promised accountability in Government has filled his staff with lobbyists, banksters and warmongers. His Attorney General refuses to prosecute some of the worst war crimes committed in modern history and continues to give legal cover to criminals who tortured with impunity.

The "War on terrorism" has mutated in to a control grid for an increasingly aware population. ...

Homeland Security now defines "Terrorists" as those who believe in the Constitution, the first, second and fourth amendments. ...

"Cyberterrorism" is being used as a pretext to bring government regulation to the the last stronghold of unbiased information. ...

... The framework for total control of the citizenry, the economy and the media is being built upon in a relentless aggrandization of Govermental power. Obama sits atop his new Empire still smiling that sickeningly disingenuous smile surrounded by his seasoned courtiers who have worked for decades to bring America in to this new era of the New World Order.

How Those Who Kill Can Enter Canada While Those Who Save Lives Are Barred; Is Canada Becoming A Safe Haven For War Criminals? World renowned, award winning journalist John Pilger commented on George Galloway’s autobiography: “Galloway’s work has saved countless lives, particularly in Iraq”. This is an accurate statement about the record of the five-times elected British MP who was described by Canadian Minister for Immigration Jason Kenny as “a threat to Canada’s security” and subsequently banned from entering Canada during March of this year. Juxtaposing the blood-soaked records of George W Bush and Bill Clinton - especially in relation to Iraq, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Somalia and elsewhere - with the unimpeachable record of George Galloway MP, the patent rudderless and deceptive nature of the current Canadian government and its media accomplices becomes transparent. The Canadian government evidently embraces the inane ethos: “if your going to kill, make sure you kill millions.” In other words, the tin pot tyrants like the Taliban and Saddam Hussein are to be demonized, subjected to show trials and marketed as a ‘threat’, while those who massacre and torture millions like Bush, Clinton, Rice and Cheney are to be venerated, ingratiated and granted VIP treatment if they choose to come to Canada at any time during their lucrative speaking tours.

Getting accused of supporting terrorism by a government and its bought-and-paid-for media who are prepared to roll out the red carpet for Bush (twice in eight weeks), Rice and Clinton is a bit like getting told to sit up straight by the Hunchback of Notre Dame. ...

It is clear that Canada is increasingly perceived to be a ‘safe haven’ for self-confessed tortures and war criminals who have committed what at Nuremburg - reflecting upon the unilateralism and genocidal practices of Nazism - was defined as “the ultimate war crime” of aggressive war. ...
 
May 24-25, 2009 -- SPECIAL REPORT. Israelis engaged in pre-election PSYOP campaign: WMR's well-placed Middle East sources have reported that Israel's extreme right-wing government of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is waging a major psychological operations (PSYOPS) campaign ahead of Lebanon's June 7 parliamentary election, in which Hezbollah (Party of God) is expected to increase its seats in parliament from the current 12. The Israeli PSYOP campaign is also intended to influence Iran's June 12 presidential election, in which President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad is running for re-election against reformist former Prime Minister Mir-Hussein Mousavi and two other candidates.

Israel and Mossad assets in the Western media have changed tack and are now suggesting that it was not Syria that was behind the February 14, 2005, car bomb assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, but it was Hezbollah that conspired to engineer the assassination. A May 23 article in Spiegel of Germany is reporting a "breakthrough" in the United Nations Special Tribunal in the Hariri assassination that began its work in Leidschendam in the Netherlands on March 1 under Canadian prosecutor Daniel Bellemare. The "breakthrough" is based on tribunal sources and leaked documents that pin Hariri's assassination on Hezbollah and Hezbollah agents trained in Iran. The timing of the "breakthrough" just before the Lebanese and Iranian elections is highly suspicious, according to WMR's sources in Lebanon and Europe.

After Bellemare's two predecessors, German Detlev Mehlis, known to be friendly to neocon and Israeli causes, and Belgian Serge Brammertz could not find any evidence linking the Hariri assassination to Syria, four Lebanese generals, considered to be close to the Syrians and who were arrested three years ago for suspicions of being involved in the assassination, were released from a Lebanese jail and cleared in March by Bellemare.

WMR's sources claim that Mossad has timed the article charging Hezbollah with the Hariri assassination to wreak havoc in the forthcoming Lebanese election and adversely affect Hezbollah's chances of success at the polls. Hezbollah has never before been implicated in the assassination of Hariri. In 2005, even Mehlis rejected the notion of Hezbollah's involvement in the Hariri assassination, although he did link it to Syrian President Bashar Assad's inner circle. However, the Syrian connection was later rejected by the UN. Without Damascus to blame, the Israeli propagandists and agents provocateurs had no choice but to pin blame on Hezbollah. Without Hezbollah, the only culprits left would be the Israelis and their Lebanese intelligence network, many of whose members are now being rounded up by Lebanese intelligence. In order to cast attention off itself, the Israelis concocted the story that Hezollah was involved in killing of Hariri.

Nasrallah was known to have met with Hariri before the assassination. It was reported by WMR that they were both opposed to the establishment of a U.S. air base in northern Lebanon. After his assassination, thousands of Hezbollah members gathered at Hariri's tomb in Beirut to pay respects to the fallen former Prime Minister. Hezbollah members carried portraits of Hariri and Nasrallah.

Spiegel's "sources," likely Israeli agents of influence, are referring to a crack in the case arising from penetration of two networks of cell phones used by Hezbollah allegedly used in planning the assassination. The cell phone networks are described as the "first circle of hell" and the "second circle of hell." The description is reminiscent of previous Israeli/neocon jargon, for example, "axis of evil" and "evil doers," regurgitated from Israeli-dominated neocon think tanks in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Washington, DC.
 
Not surprisingly, Lieberman, after the publication of the Spiegel piece, called for an international arrest warrant to be issued for Hezbollah leader Hasan Nasrallah. Saudi-funded Al Arabiya television has also been playing up the Spiegel story.

The Spiegel story comes after wide Middle Eastern and Russian media attention was given to WMR's report that Hariri was assassinated by a unit of Vice President Dick Cheney's assassination squads that were already active in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other countries. The Israeli media PSYOP campaign is also designed to focus attention away from a growing Israeli espionage scandal in Lebanon. Some twenty Mossad cells, involving more than 30 people, have been identified by Lebanese authorities with spying for Israel. WMR has learned that some of these Mossad cells have been linked to the assassinations of Hariri, Member of Parliament Elie Hobeika, former Lebanese Communist Party chief George Hawi, and other Lebanese leaders. Although WMR previously reported that Mossad and its American allies used rogue Syrian intelligence agents and Palestinian and Druze functionaries in these attacks, the operations were designed to give plausible deniability to both the Israelis and the American units who reported to Cheney.

On October 24, 2006, WMR reported: "A senior French DGSE -- Direction générale de la sécurité extérieure -- intelligence officer has told WMR that Lebanon's ex-Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was killed in a car bombing arranged by Israel's Mossad. The revelation from French intelligence is significant as the French government of Jacques Chirac joined the Bush administration and the neo-con policy establishments in Washington and Israel in blaming Syria for the attack. According to the DGSE officer, Israel and its American backers wanted to blame Syria for the assassination of the popular Lebanese leader in order to blame Syria for the attack thus forcing the popular Lebanese revolt that saw the withdrawal of Syrian forces. That left Lebanon defenseless for the 'Clean Break' attack launched by Israel, with US support, against Hezbollah and Lebanon's infrastructure. WMR was one of the first to report Israeli and American involvement in the assassination of Hariri, as well as those of Elie Hobeika, George Hawi, and other Lebanese politicians."On March 28, 2008, WMR reported: "A UN panel headed by former Canadian prosecutor Daniel Bellemare has concluded that former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was assassinated by a 'criminal networK' and not by either Syrian and Lebanese intelligence or Lebanese Hezbollah as proffered by the neocon propaganda mill operating out of Washington, DC and Jerusalem. The UN panel said that a 'Hariri Network' had the ex-Prime Minister under surveillance before the Beirut massive car bombing that killed Hariri and 22 other people in November 2005. WMR previously reported that the 'criminal network' was composed of Lebanese and rogue Syrian intelligence agents connected to Israel's Mossad and a White House operation run by National Security Council senior staff member Elliott Abrams, the formerly convicted Iran-contra figure."
 
On November 1, 2005, WMR reported: "WMR has obtained the Confidential version of the Mehlis Report on the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Mehlis is the Senior Public Prosecutor in the Attorney General's Office in Berlin. He was named Commissioner of the UN International Independent Investigation Commission into the Hariri assassination. Mehlis is a darling of neocons who served in the Reagan administration. It was his investigation of the 1982 La Belle Discotheque bombing in West Berlin that was used as justification by Reagan to launch a 1986 bombing attack on Libya. Mehlis concluded that Libya was behind the attack conveniently at the same time that pro-Israelis in the Reagan administration, including Richard Perle, Michael Ledeen, Paul Wolfowitz, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Scooter Libby, and others were calling for an attack on Muammar Qaddafi. The Mehlis Report, dated October 19, 2005, states the Commission 'focused on the crime scene, technical aspects of the crime, analysis of telephone intercepts, the testimony of more than 500 witnesses and sources, as well as the institutional context in which the crime took place.' The confidential copy indicates that certain information, all of which implicates Syria and pro-Syrian Lebanese officials, was added just before the report was issued."

On May 2, 2009, Nasrallah, in a televised address, called on UN investigators to consider Israel in its investigation. He said the Israelis had "the motive" and "the capability" to carry out the massive car bombing that took Hariri's life and 22 others and injured more than 100. The attack mirrored a number of other false flag operations carried about by Mossad with a little-known group calling itself "Victory and Jihad in Greater Syria" claiming responsibility for the attack.

The Saudi connection to Hariri's assassination is also noteworthy. On November 19, 2005, WMR reported:

"Was Rafik Hariri a threat to the Bin Laden monopoly? A classified but undated French intelligence report points to the fact that the assassinated former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was considered a potential monopoly-busting building construction competitor by the Bin Laden cartel, which is described as having a "monopoly" on construction contracts involving Islamic Holy sites in Saudi Arabia.

The operative paragraph from the French report states:

The Bin Laden family monopoly wields itself on work on the Islamic Holy Places (it is required that all the important companies such as Oger, Dar Al-Handasa, Mabani, or CCI must sub-contract with the monopoly) and the links which bind the family to the the Saudi dynasty over numerous years has resulted in a considerable financial cache, it is difficult to quantify but is twenty times than that amassed by Rafik Hariri.

Note: Oger, or Saudi Oger, is the company formed by Hariri in 1971, which became a major Saudi contractor under King Fahd.
The United States, using the United Nations as a proxy, is pressuring Syria over the assassination of Rafik Hariri. With evidence that Hariri was viewed as a potential threat to the Bin Laden monopoly, which is tied closely to the Saudi Royal Family, the Saudis may be as culpable in the assassination as is the Likud government of Israel and the Bush administration."

Wayne Madsen Report (in full) -
May 25-26, 2009 -- Active and retired top military brass met to discuss what really happened on 9/11: WMR has learned from a well-informed source that in the months after the 9/11 attacks, a group of retired and active duty military officers, with ranks as high as general, met in an informal and hush-hush working group to discuss what actually occured on September 11, 2001. WMR has been told that those who met did not believe, in whole or in part, the official line that nineteen Arabs nationals armed with box cutters hijacked four U.S. passenger planes and flew three of them into the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

The officers included veterans of Marine Corps Special Operations.

The officers concluded that it was impossible for the military's command and control, intelligence, and other defense systems to cascade in a total failure on the morning of September 11. They quietly set out to find out what actually occured that morning and who or what influenced the total failure of defense, intelligence, and air traffic control systems.

The officers were forced to hold their meetings in secret because of retaliation brought against those who revealed information embarassing to the Bush administration about both 9/11 and the concocted war against Iraq.

It is now being reported that investigators for the 9/11 Commission drafted a memo in April 2004 stating they believed that the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) lied to commission investigators by indicating the military's readiness was sufficient on 9/11. Commission staffer John Azzerello is reported to have given the memo to Commission Executive Director Philip Zelikow, a leading neocon, who then "buried it." Commission investigators wanted a strongly-worded criminal referral on NORAD and FAA perjury sent to the Justice Department but Zelikow downplayed the complaint and later told Phil Shenon, the author of "The Commission" and New York Times reporter, that he did not know of the criminal referral issue at the time.

The 9/11 Commission documents about the perjury of NORAD and FAA officials corroborates the concerns expressed by the retired military officers about the true version of events on 9/11.
 
THE SIEGE IS OVER….. FOR REAL THIS TIME! ….. HOPE CONVOY ENTERS GAZALATEST….. GREATEST NEWS YET!
If you missed my last post, they are INSIDE NOW!! SPREAD THE WORD, THE SIEGE IS BROKEN!

I am so happy for all the Palestinians on the convoy who got home tonight. I can hardly type this update. There are media everywhere and cameras, but so far no big news agency has shown anything on TV yet as I am checking constantly as I type.I expect more reports and photos tonight, now that they are inside!! So check back after the greeting is over.

And for the Irish people a very special greeting from Gaza was given to Gerry MacLochlainn the Sinn Fein Irish Representative as he arrived in Gaza.

That greeting is below AND they said it in Irish:
“Tiocfaidh Ar La!”For those who do not know that phrase, it comes from the Irish struggle for freedom, translated it means “our day will come”
 
US Holds Journalist Without Charges in Iraq: Baghdad - The soldiers came at 1:30 a.m, rousing family members who were sleeping on the roof to escape the late-summer heat.

They broke down the front door. Accompanied by dogs, American and Iraqi troops burst into the Jassam family home in the town of Mahmoudiya south of Baghdad.

"Where is the journalist Ibrahim?" one of the Iraqi soldiers barked at the grandparents, children and grandchildren as they staggered blearily down the stairs.

Ibrahim Jassam, a cameraman and photographer for the Reuters news agency, stepped forward, one of this brothers recalled. "Take me if you want me, but please leave my brothers." The soldiers rifled through the house, confiscating his computer hard drive and cameras. And then they led him away, handcuffed and blindfolded.

That was Sept. 2.

Jassam, 31, has been in U.S. custody ever since. His case is the latest of a dozen detentions the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists has documented since 2001.

No formal accusations have been made against Jassam, and an Iraqi court ordered in November that he be released for lack of evidence. But the U.S. military continues to hold him, saying it has intelligence that he is "a high security threat," said Maj. Neal Fisher, spokesman for detainee affairs.

The Obama administration harshly criticized Iran for its imprisonment of Roxana Saberi, the U.S.-Iranian journalist who was convicted of espionage and sentenced to eight years in prison before being freed two weeks ago. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton criticized Iran's treatment of Saberi as "non-transparent, unpredictable and arbitrary."

Jassam is the only Iraqi journalist still in U.S. custody, the last to be detained under wartime rules that predated a U.S.-Iraqi security agreement signed in December. Under the new accord, U.S. forces are required to obtain a warrant before they can arrest an Iraqi citizen.
