Four more journalists held captive in Libya

The headline:  Four more foreign journalists in captivity; Gadhafi exclusive on the way?

The summary:  Shortly after the release of four American journalists in Libya, reports have surfaced that four more foreign journalists have been take prisoner by forces loyal to Muammer Gadhafi.

The reaction:  Gadhafi has had a long and storied history of crimes against humanity and this is a stark reminder that the freedoms we have here in the U.S. such as freedom of the press is not a view shared around the world.

The article goes on to state that the captives are “safe” and will be released “soon” but the fact that innocent people are being held prisoner in Libya is greatly disturbing.
