In Kafka's Court

More

The case of AP photographer Bilal Hussein really is a disgrace. Smeared by Michelle Malkin as a terrorist-supporter, defended by his bosses, we now hear this:

Paul Gardephe, the lawyer handling the case for the AP, said the military recently acknowledged to him that it has no evidence to support earlier allegations that Hussein was involved in a plot to kidnap two other journalists.

Kathleen Carroll, executive editor of the AP, said, "The sort of rolling set of allegations that arise and then disappear without the benefit of a trial ... or any kind of an official court proceeding is what is distressing to all of us here." She spoke during a panel discussion in connection with World Press Freedom Day. Officials have what they believe to be information that links Hussein to insurgent activity, but most of the evidence is classified and cannot be released publicly, said Col. Gary Keck, a Pentagon spokesman.

Orcinus has some choice comments.
