US Military Frees Journalist Held for 17 months
The US claimed he was a "classified" secirity threat and have held Jassan with no charges for the last 17 months.
"Jassam was one of several Iraqi journalists working for foreign news organizations who have been detained by the U.S. military, often for months at a time, since the 2003 U.S. invasion. None have ever been charged, triggering criticism from international journalism rights groups.
"I am very pleased his long incarceration without charge is finally over," said editor-in-chief David Schlesinger. "I wish the process to release a man who had no specific accusations against him had been swifter."email me
