Abdulelah Haider Shaye is a Yemeni journalist that was set to be released by his government but Obama Administration put a stop to that and at last report, is still in prison.

I can’t find any mention of his name on any Intelligence government site except for the WH’s and it’s only the press briefing with Jake Tapper asking about him.

This is by far one of the most disturbing actions by the Obama Administration that I’ve become aware of and because the background on what led up to his imprisonment is sketchy it’s best to just Google his name to glean news reports.

Anyway, here’s the WH Press Briefing Q&A dated March 15 , 2012 and so far I don’t think Jay Carney has gotten back w/Jake on Shaye.
