Bahrain: Guest of the State -

They came for him
in the middle of the night . . .

Agents of the Bahrain government kidnapped Blogger
Mahmood al-Yousif at 3am from his home and sequestered him for a period of time. It didn't look like an arrest because there were no charges forthcoming, but it was worrisome anyway.

Happily, Mahmood has been released, and we can all feel relieved. It turned out that they just wanted to question him. But what led up to this startling episode? Inquiring minds want to know.

Mahmood fills us in on the background here.
