War on reporters continues

If the nation's journalist weren't chilled enough by government spying on their phone calls and threats of prosecution for the publication of dubiously classified material, today comes word from The New York Times's Neil A. Lewis that the Pentagon has expelled from the illegal U.S. prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, reporters from The Miami Herald, The Los Angeles Times and The Charlotte Observer who had been reporting on the suicides of three inmates, which took place over the last weekend. Lewis's piece is cryptic, but surely more will emerge on this story as the reporters return stateside to write of their ordeal.
