Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi Has Died In A Libyan Prison

BradBlog is (as usual) providing excellent coverage of this article's importance, and asks why American corporate media is not covering this news:
Coverage of al-Libi 'Suicide' Almost Wholly Absent from U.S. Mainstream Corporate Media (But there's plenty on a comedian's jokes about Limbaugh and Hannity at the White House Correspondents Dinner)

So, it's been about 16 hours since we covered indie journalist/historian/blogger Andy Worthington's detailed report on the reported suicide of the man who falsely "confessed," during torture, to a false tie between Iraq and al-Qaeda. The forced confession was subsequently used by the Bush Administration (Bush himself, as well as Powell and others) as justification for the war on Iraq. That, despite the fact that Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi recanted his story not long thereafter, as long and widely reported.
As of this moment, not a single mainstream U.S. newspaper or broadcast outlet has reported on the story. Is it not notable? Or are our newspapers just dead set on ensuring their irrelevance by continuing to not report on news that actually matters, no matter how widely it's being reported in other parts of the world?

TO END, by way of integrity and god-given creativity, the regime and illicit power structures responsible for 9/11 and to replace the system that made 9/11 necessary. We solicit collaboration with others who are committed to achieving these goals by way of peaceful transformation.
