With one phone call President Obama induced the Yemeni government to keep Abdulelah Haider Shaye, an independent journalist, in prison. See Jeremy Scahill's report in The Nation about this. So much for freedom of the press and speaking truth to power. Shaye revealed the killing of civilians in Yemen by Americans who were doing covert operations against Al Qaeda there. Obama doesn't like whistleblowers. President Obama must expedite the release of this journalist who is supported internationally and by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch as well as by the Committee to Protect Journalists.
