AP photographer Bilal Hussein was on the radar screen of US forces prior to his being detained in a chance encounter April 12, 2006. He was a stringer working in Fallujah who filed numerous reports and photos that seemed to need a high degree of cooperation from the terrorists. He has been in custody for 19 months and will soon face trial by the Iraqi government on charges related to his activities with Sunni insurgents in Fallujah and Ramadi. Evidence against him is expected to be given to the Iraqi government this week.
Geoff Morrell, Pentagon Press Secretary had this to say: We believe Bilal Hussein was a terrorist media operative who infiltrated the AP. MNF-I [Multi-National Force Itaq] possesses convincing and irrefutable evidence that Bilal Hussein is a threat to security and stability as a link to insurgent activity.
They noted ongoing reports coming out of Fallujah that did not match the reality they were aware of. Stories of children and civilians being killed would come out, but in areas where the Marines had not conducted operations.
Bilal Hussein had free reign to be anywhere and was often taking pictures in the company of insurgents and terrorists. He and the other stringers who made up APs Pulitzer Prize winning photo team managed to capture assassinations as they happened. They were on site at bombings within seconds to capture the carnage almost as it happened.
This access and the number of false reports of civilian deaths led the information operations staff to take note.
This team was comprised of US Public Affairs and Intelligence personnel as well as a Special Ops unit to exploit any actionable intelligence gathered. It was an extraordinary measure and only the fact that Hussein and several others were acting as terror press agents prompted it.

Consider what you think you know about the Iraq Campaign and the possibility of a war with Iran. What sources of information have you used to come to your conclusions? Can you be confident that your emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately your behavior have not been manipulated by psychological operations?
How much do you think I'd have read if he'd been found "guilty" of helping the US in Iraq?
Quite the contrary. The head of the AP has been defending this slime and blaming the United States Government for "suppressing the truth" and targeting this wonderful journalist because he has been reporting things that the U.S. wants kept quiet. The AP are not supporting terrorists, they ARE terrorists.
Exactly. And this cuts across all issues and events.
The immigration debacle was the tipping point for many lifelong DemocRATS in my family, but even after their awakening some of them still absorb the heavily filtered "news" from the broadcast news sources and wholeheartedly believe other Liberal lies like Glo-Bull warming and Iraq = Quagmire (With apologies to The Family Guy).
They just refuse to believe how pervasive the Liberal agenda is in the media and Hollywood. The idea that there is a rigidly enforced Liberal hegemony in the media that corrupts most of what you hear from the MSM is to them an impossibility. I think the truth is they prefer not to consider it because it shakes their belief in how the world works and it is just too unpleasant to consider.
Look at the expression of shock on my face! ====> :0
I was wondering when the Pulitzer Board was going to get around to awarding a prize for abetting terrorism.
He didn't infiltrate the AP, he joined the AP. You don't infiltrate an organization that is on the same side as you are.
“One down and hundreds more fifth column journalists here in the United States need to be frog marched to the gallows for being a traitor to their country.”
Thanks for pinging.
You are SO right. As a matter of fact, the entire April 2004 Fallujah battle, as reported by most of the media, was a lie. It was stories from “reporters” who made deals with the terrorists to spread the propaganda and willingly lapped up by the mainstream media. The list of terrorist collaborators in the media is long and worldwide including some “Americans”. They will all be exposed for the traitors that they are.
You nailed it.
Thanks for the ping to this excellent piece, Ma.
