Watch for other such petitions & urge personal letters to the White House of all kinds. This one act is precious for this one brave journalist...we must address and end this trend. (To jail, intimidate, isolate and imprison journalists who are merely doing their work and doing it well -- how can we let this continue? Just look back a little ways in history. We must not let history repeat itself in ever larger circles of injustice.)

The Nation’s Jeremy Scahill, Glenn Greenwald and others have been recently offering a corroborated and detailed account of how Shaye came to be in jail and why the US government is determined to keep him there:

Why are key US officials encouraging the keeping of such a pardoned and respected journalist in prison in Yemen? (Respected US and other journalists claim he's merely been using his rare access to cover various sides of the Yemen conflict for Aljazeera and other reports.)

This ACTION will only take a few moments of your precious time.
