ok so its someone I've never heard of before in a country Id be struggling to find on a map but I happened to be reading the article below on the upcoming film Dirty Wars and it appears that on Obama's instructions a Yemeni journalist Abdulelah Haider Shaye is being held prisoner even though he was to be released, his only crime being that he reported that a supposed Yemeni military strike in their country was in fact a US strike. How is it acceptable for the president of a democracy to engage in the tactics of dictators where it appears the Press is only free if it reports what is expected of them?

Scahill interviews the still-traumatized survivors of the US cruise missile and cluster bomb attack in Southern Yemen that killed 35 women and children just weeks after Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. We see the widespread anger in Yemen over the fact that the Yemeni journalist who first exposed US responsibility for that attack, Abdulelah Haider Shaye, was not only arrested by the US puppet regime but, as Scahill first reported, has been kept imprisoned to this very day at the direct insistence of President Obama.
