Stop Attacking the American Journalist
Thats the title of an article in the Yemen Times defending me by Abdulkarim al-Khaiwani, the Yemeni editor the bloggers helped me circulate a petition for. He was granted amnesty a week later (this was back in March.) Sometimes payback is not a beeyotch.It discusses the Yemeni regime's attempts to contact me before they decided to start calling me a Zionist and numerous other nasty names in the governmental papers. So this line is pretty funny: The question, which has been raised, is that how is it possible for the President’s journalist Mr. Sanabani to meet a Zionist writer. Is that snark? Translated from Arabic it still comes through as snark. Jane Update: me bud d-rod asks the eturnal question Why? Maybe its my articles like this one about the criminal activities of the Yemeni president or maybe this one about attacks on the Yemeni journalists. My articles also get translated into Arabic and published in Yemen, so I'm blowing their propaganda in the West and inside Yemen.

I had to laugh...and even if the "neo-cronies" are all going to court, you still gotta giggle at this. Since I haven't been around, has it been a shit storm in here with recent news?

Greyrooster hasn't been here, either. He only got back yesterday after having heart surgery.

(Although I'm sorry to see the usual suspects hijack an otherwise excellent thread with totally non-related comments.)

Im very good at ignoring trolls, and these are lightweights compared to the Yemeni govt weasels.
I'll be posting the interesting stuff about the terrorist sponsoring kleptocracy known as the Yemeni government. Or when they do something bad like kidnap a reformer.
