A Yemeni journalist, who worked for ABC News and the Washington
Post, and is cited by the New York Times as an Al-Qaeda expert, was
moments away from being released from a Yemeni prison, but now
remains there indefinitely at President Obama's request.
Having committed no real crimes to speak of, Abdulelah Haider Shaye
is perhaps guilty of exposing the U.S. involvement in the killing
of 14 women and 21 children in a so-called strike on Al-Qaeda
militants. A fact that President Obama wanted to be kept secret.
