    In Egypt the govt has held 3 Al Jazeera reporters for 400 days after being accused of assisting the Muslim brotherhood (aiding a terrorist group). One more guy may be released but the third is fully Egyptian. His fate may be far less promising. This story has been covered daily on the television channel - Al Jazeera America.
    Much crazy judicial happenings are going on in Cairo. Court decisions covering whole groups of people have become regular business. Stay tuned.

    It scares me that we have such close relations with these types of countries. Diplomacy makes strange bedfellows, but we seem to consistently be on the wrong side of history throughout these past sixty plus years. No journalist, in any country, should be arrested for doing their jobs.
