The CJR Daily‘s Paul McLeary demanded Tuesday that The Associated Press stop dragging its feet and provide evidence that a source they quoted, Iraqi police Captain Jamail Hussein, exists. (The Iraqi government and U.S. military had denied it.)
Today, the AP obliges:
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — The Interior Ministry acknowledged Thursday that an Iraqi police officer whose existence had been denied by the Iraqis and the U.S. military is in fact an active member of the force, and said he now faces arrest for speaking to the media.
