“Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead!”

Email Email Print

Africa’s leading thug, Zimbabwe’s Mugabe, gives every sign of resorting to whatever it takes to hold on to power in that tortured country.

As part of the clamp down, Mugabe’s goons have arrested a New York Times reporter:

The government has also cracked down on foreign journalists, who have been covering the election without accreditation. On Thursday, the police arrested Barry Bearak, a correspondent in the Johannesburg bureau of The New York Times, on charges related to covering the election without official permission from the government. He was still being held in a Harare jail on Saturday.

Though unilateralism isn’t in favor at the paper of record for the left, President Bush ought to take a page from TR’s book and let Mugabe know he has avery limited period of time in which to release the American unharmed.

UPDATE: Jim Geraghty informs me that Mr. Bearak is a British citizen, which means that Prime Minister Brown should join President Bush in delivering the ultimatum to Mugabe.
