Glass Gitmos

Writing for the Khaleej Times (UAE), Mohammed A.R. Galadari makes a good point:
Seeing all those outcry by some Muslim and Arab journalists about atrocities being committed at the Bay, I wonder whether they should also not be equally concerned about and write on things that are happening in the jails or outside in their own lands?
For the most part this article makes the obvious point that the transparency and democratic responsiveness in the West effectively addresses wrongs, and that it is hypocritical for authoritarian crackpots to point the finger at America. He's right, of course.
