Pulitzer Prize-Winning War Photographer Held By Us Because of .... Why?

From Harper's Magazine: "A Pulitzer Prize-winning war photographer is seized by U.S. Forces and locked up for one year. The U.S. refuses to bring any charges. When American military spokesmen suggest their 'suspicions' in interviews with the media, virtually all of them are exposed as false within a matter of weeks. No matter. He is still held."

Read the rest of the appalling story here. If it is in fact true that we are holding this guy for the sole reason of preventing him from taking more "embarrassing" photos of what's really happening in Iraq, then something is seriously, seriously wrong with our conduct in this war.
