Another Bombshell from Scahill

You can either watch the corporate media and learn about how political leaders of one party have offended those that belong to the other party. Or you can watch real news from groups that do real journalism and you can learn about stories that actually matter.

Real journalists include people like Nir Rosen, who actually investigates what's happening in Iraq rather than embedding with the US military and looking only at what they want you to see. Jeremy Scahill recently revealed the existence of a CIA black site in Mogadishu. Glenn Greenwald was the one that broke the Bradley Manning torture story. And of course Julian Assange and his team at Wikileaks. More scoops there than you could probably count, but here's a sampling.

Scahill has done it again with his lead story in "The Nation". Why is President Obama Keeping a Journalist in Prison in Yemen? That's right. Human rights groups and press freedom groups have denounced the detention of a journalist in Yemen. In fact the puppet dictator in Yemen felt the pressure and was prepared to release him. Until Obama personally intervened. Scahill was interviewed on Democracy Now. You can watch that below.
