Since the Saudi-led military incursion into Bahrain several weeks ago, the street protests have basically stopped. Now that the streets are free of protesters, authorities are hunting them down in their homes, work places and even hospitals.
First they came for the human rights activists. Now, Bahraini authorities are looking to censor the media. In the meantime, the rights community is showing exasperation with perceived American passivity.
In Bahrain today, a geo-strategic ally of the United States has massacred its own people. Meanwhile, in New York, the United States cast a lone veto on a resolution condemning new Israeli settlement construction.
