WSJ's Eason Jordan Kerfuffle

Click above for a nice summary of the Wall Street Journal's place in L'Affaire Eason Jordan.

I guess the key question now is has the video of Jordan's remarks been used for propaganda purposes in the Arab world? To get closer to an answer you could ask

1) Whose camera was it? Who has custody of the tape?
2) Since the proceedings were allegedly confidential who approved a camera?
3) Similarly, who approved a blogger? Isn't he just a part of the public relations machine intended to publicize the proceedings, not hide them?
4) Can you go out on the streets of Baghdad and find an Arabic language version of his remarks?

The whole thing smells fishy! It could just be the media circling the wagons, or it could be something more sinister. Time should tell!
