Why Isn't Bilal Hussein Free?

What the hell?

The US military says it will continue to hold Iraqi news photographer Bilal Hussein while it reviews a government amnesty order.

The Associated Press (AP) man has been held for two years on suspicion of helping Iraqi insurgents.

But Iraqi judges on Wednesday dismissed the accusations and ordered his release under this year's Amnesty Law.

A US military spokesman said Mr Hussein would still be held as a "terrorist" threat pending a review of the order.
