Via Riverbend, Iraqi blogger (and, therefore, free speech activist) Khalid Jarrar has been abducted by the Mukhabarat, Iraq's intelligence service. The name has an understandably negative connotation, because it served as Saddam's secret police, but Khalid's brother Raed explains why it beats the alternatives.

The above is a post that was put up at The Liberal Avenger earlier tonight. I'll be updating the story and it's coverage in this diary.
