MSM Touches on Jordan Story

RODERICK BOYD - Staff Reporter of the N Y Sun
February 8, 2005 has put the story out.
In an interview with The New York Sun, Mr. Frank said Mr. Jordan discussed in detail the plight of an Al-Jazeera reporter who had been detained by American forces, was made to eat his shoes while incarcerated in the Abu Ghraib prison, and was repeatedly mocked by his interrogators as "Al-Jazeera boy."

A man who said he was a producer with Al-Jazeera at the network's headquarters in Doha, Qatar, said he was unaware of any such incident, "although we have had problems with American troops in and out of Iraq." The Al-Jazeera producer refused to give his name.
prying1 sez: If Mr. Jordan really believes U.S. troops/guards made this unnamed reporter eat his shoes then he has a bigger problem than I thought...

Another witness comes forward - Roger at This isn't writing, it's typing - had the lowdown on and translation for a French speaking blogger - Check links to corrections on the translation - That is what I love about bloggers. They do take the time to correct themselves and are willing to say, "I was wrong."....

Now where is the tape???
