Jesus Christ on a stick. Will somebody tell the president to knock it off? The spree of incarceration goes on… (Nod to Andrew Sullivan)

A Pulitzer Prize-winning war photographer is seized by U.S. Forces and locked up for one year. The U.S. refuses to bring any charges. When American military spokesmen suggest their “suspicions” in interviews with the media, virtually all of them are exposed as false within a matter of weeks. No matter. He is still held. But surely this is some dark alternate universe, and not the one we inhabit, you think?

Actually it’s some dark alternate universe, and it’s the one we inhabit.
