Lannan speaker delayed in Canada

U.S. immigration officials refused Tuesday to allow Robert Fisk, longtime Middle East correspondent for the London newspaper, The Independent, to board a plane from Toronto to Denver. Fisk was on his way to Santa Fe for a sold-out appearance in the Lannan Foundation’s readings-and-conversations series Wednesday night.

According to Christie Mazuera Davis, a Lannan program officer, Fisk was told that his papers were not in order.

Davis made last-minute arrangements Wednesday for Amy Goodman, host of Pacifica Radio’s daily news show, Democracy Now!, to interview Fisk via satellite from a television station in Toronto. He appeared on a large screen onstage at the Lensic Performing Arts Center.

The controversial British journalist, who is based in Beirut, filed many eyewitness reports on the U.S. invasion of Iraq and criticized Western reporters for “hotel journalism ,” a phrase he coined to describe correspondents who covered the war from heavily fortified hotel suites and offices.

I seem to recall Dr. Henry reprinting some of Fisk's work on his savethemales website.
Essentially, Fisk demonstrated that very little of Iraq was actually under U. S. control by venturing outside of the "hotel zone" and reporting candidly on what he found.
No wonder he is not a favorite of the current administration.

blood on the line in huge numbers whereas here

we are mostly blog demonstrators.

Fisk also reported that the US military stood idly by as professional looters raided the Baghdad museum.

They have no choice. They have been invaded by a COMPLETELY foreign culture that is killing them. You too would be killing the invader. They are not hero's. They are doing what they have to do.

I bet if the U.N was running America he would be allowed to travel! And he would get a kiss at the border and a fond farewell.

That Bush is SO evil!

Something must be done!
