Our buddy #Bahrain is now referring a human rights activist, Nabeel Rajab, to the prosecutor for a tweet he posted!

The illegal tweet includes a photo that looks as if a dead prisoner was beaten. The govt says photo was doctored.

To me, the photos and videos of the torture on the dead man look authentic, and the Bahrain govt's credibility is zero.

In any case, is #Bahrain really saying that it will throw people in prison for their tweets? "Practicing Twitter without a license"?

With this crackdown, is there any moral difference between King Hamad of Bahrain and PM Ahmadinejad of Iran?

Torture is wrong whether it's Americans doing it at Gitmo, Shiites doing it in Baghdad, or Sunnis doing it in Bahrain.
