One would think that a previous House Rep. & previous U.S. Presidential candidate accompanied by a Nobel Laureate being captured by military troops would be news. Not this time; the military involved is Israel's.
Cynthia McKinney and 20 other passengers, including the Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Mairead Maguire had their vessel boarded in international waters , were captured and are currently still being held.
I must question why such a thing was not mentioned in the news. What if John McCain and Al Gore had been captured? Or even Bob Barr? Why is there nothing being said? I found 3 articles when I did a Google "NEWS" search. THREE! Was there a single major news source? Ha. The Age (of Australia) and the Palestine Telegraph appear to be the closest thing to major news sources so far.
What has happened to Journalism?
Ya know, that's a good question. I'm calling the editor of my paper. What are you going to do?
