Haditha 'Massacre' Source Once Jailed By US Troops

A Reuters-In-Iraq reporter who is the source for the 'Haditha Massacre' media frenzy has been arrested and detained by US Troops, twice. Once earler for about five months and as recent as two weeks ago. Even Reuters admits:

Ali al-Mashhadani, 37, was arrested by U.S. Marines in his home town of Ramadi on May 20"

The source for the Haditha story is none other than Mr. Mashhadani who broke the story only weeks after being released from US Custody the first time, for having evidence on his camera that Marines say indicated his ties to the Insurgency.

A US Military investigation of the soldiers in question has already cleared all of them, and final vindication is pending in an Iraqi Gov't investigation.
