Update: Call for Release of Photographer

CNN has reported an update to my earlier blog post on the call for release of photographer, Bilal Hussein.

Reportedly,

[Pentagon spokesperson Geoff] Morrell said the reason for the delay in charging the man was that "additional evidence had come to light that the man was a media operative who had infiltrated The Associated Press."

Morrell said the Iraqi court system would hold a hearing later this month to determine if there was enough evidence to continue to trial.

Gee; after a year and a half, I'm sure the Iraqi court will do a fine job. This photographer - who was part of the team that won a Pulitzer Prize - is our biggest worry for security?
