U.S. detainment of journalists

The Committee to Protect Journalists has asked President Obama to look at the U.S. military’s detention of journalists.

The group says that 14 journalists have been held for long periods of time in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo without due process. One of the 14 remains so.

The group also says that 16 journalists have been killed by the U.S. military in Iraq since 2003.

The committee’s report serves as a reminder that we must hold our government accountable for its actions.
