James Foley, a correspondent for GlobalPost, and Clare Gillis, a freelance reporter for The Atlantic, talk about what it was like being detained by Libyan soldiers for six weeks, reporting on the opposition, and witnessing the death of a colleague.
I was wondering if at any time these reporters were asked about --or taunted with-- the way the US has treated some reporters in Iraq. Especially the Al Jazeera guy sent to Grantanamo (I don't have time to check place of "detention.," but that's in my memory).
And, of course, our military killed several journalists in Iraq. Was that mentioned?
