You're absolutely right that the AP doesn't want the facts of this case aired. If they were on its side, they'd be looking for retribution and they'd be screaming from every rooftop about the awful US military squelching the truth and targeting journalists for mistreatment, and they'd be defending Hussein's innocence and clearing his name. Instead, we get this:

AP President Tom Curley expressed relief.

"In time we will celebrate Bilal's release. For now, we want him safe and united with his family. While we may never see eye to eye with the U.S. military over this case, it is time for all of us to move on," said Curley.

Maybe he's going to hang out with his brother Jamil Hussein.

Sorry, I forgot. Jamil Hussein's a pseudonym the AP still hasn't fessed up to using for someone reporting fake stories in Iraq.
