Update: Bilal Hussein

Today The New York Times ran this story on the legal predicament of Iraqi photojournalist Bilal Hussein who has been detained for twenty months without charge by the U.S. Military. I have posted on this several times before [1] [2] [3]. The story is a bit odd insofar as it focues primarily on the difficulties this sort of thing poses for foreign news agencies rather than the circumstances Hussein has had to endure or the broader issues that his case raises (e.g., rule of law, freedom of the press).
