GPOY, sadly. I’m not ashamed to admit I cried when I had to leave nine linear feet of old Spy and Vanity Fair magazines behind in my last move.

Obama ‘concerned & disappointed’ after respected journalist who exposed US war crimes is freed in Yemen
July 26, 2013
The White House is “concerned and disappointed” over the news that Yemeni Journalist Abdulelah Haider Shaye, who was kept in a Yemeni jail for three years per the request of the Obama administration after he exposed a deadly U.S. drone strike, was released Tuesday.
Following news of Shaye’s release, journalist Jeremy Scahill, who has written extensively about Shaye’s story, contacted the White House for a comment.
The White House’s response was brief and alarming:
We are concerned and disappointed by the early release of Abd-Ilah al-Shai, who was sentenced by a Yemeni court to five years in prison for his involvement with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
According to Scahill and numerous other journalists who have followed the story, Shaye’s only involvement with Al Qaeda was conducting interviews with their members for major news outlets that included the Washington Post, ABC News and the New York Times.
Shaye’s legal troubles only arose after he uncovered the deadly U.S. strike that killed dozens of innocent Yemeni civilians, after which he was thrown in prison. At one point Shaye was slated for early release, but a phone call from president Obama urged Yemeni officials to keep him behind bars.
"We should let that statement set in," Scahill said of the White House’s response. “The White House is saying that they are disappointed and concerned that a Yemeni journalist has been released from a Yemeni prison.”
"This is a man who was put in prison because he had the audacity to expose a U.S. cruise missile attack that killed three dozen women and children."
….& the Obama administration’s war on truth continues.
Finally! I posted several articles about Abdulelah’s case last year and I wanted to emphasize that he was imprisoned because Obama personally gave the Yemeni president a call and demanded that Abdulelah be jailed after hearing of his first release.
The journalist revealed to the world that Obama issued a drone strike in Yemen, killing 14 women and 21 children in addition to some men and the elderly.
He then covered up the story by telling the Yemeni government to report that they conducted a series of strikes against an al Qaeda training camp in the village of al Majala in Yemen’s southern Abyan province, killing a number of al Qaeda militants.
But when Abdulelah visited the site of the attack, he found the remnants of Tomahawk cruise missiles and cluster bombs, neither of which are in the Yemeni military’s arsenal. He photographed the missile parts, some of them bearing the label “Made in the USA," and distributed the photos to international media outlets. He revealed that among the victims of the strike were women, children and the elderly.
What more do I need to say to convince you that Obama is a warmonger as well as a horrible person?
someone please tell me this isn’t actually true.
Yes, it’s true. I bought that paper.
