Bahrain Boils Under the Lid of Repression

Anthony Shadid published an article in the New York Times called “Bahrain Boils Under the Lid of Repression” on September 15.
The balance of the article has been questioned. Shadid mentions nothing about the Crown Prince’s national dialogue initiatives, whilst he is rather dismissive of the possibility of any Iranian interference in the protests. The Bahraini government has been very unfriendly to foreign journalists since March, and so one has to suspect if Shadid is visiting Manama with government blessing.
