Rep. Louise Slaughter: Water carrier for AP and security detainee Bilal Hussein
The Associated (with terrorists) Press thinks it’s news that a Democrat congresswoman is recycling the suppressed-news organization’s talking points about Bilal Hussein, the AP photographer who was discovered by American troops in a Ramadi apartment with an alleged al Qaeda leader and a weapons cache, and who tested positive for explosives:
A Democratic congresswoman cited the case of an Iraqi Associated Press photographer imprisoned by the U.S. military during debate Wednesday on a new prisoner treatment bill that she considers too harsh.
Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., referred to Bilal Hussein, who has been detained in Iraq for more than five months, in a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives.
“He was accused of aiding and abetting the insurgency, but he has yet to be charged with any crime,” Slaughter said. She noted that the AP has demanded that Hussein either be released or charged so that he can be turned over to the Iraqi court system for trial.
Slaughter said she also planned to write to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld about Hussein’s case.
Attention, GOP: Please educate yourselves about this story and get the facts out. AP isn’t going to do it.
