Was Glenn Greenwald, the reporter for The Guardian who broke story of secret NSA surveillance, targeted by the UK government? His partner, David Miranda, was held for nearly nine hours at London's Heathrow Airport on Sunday.

CNN's Hala Gorani, sitting in for Christiane Amanpour, discusses the question with Brooke Gladstone, the host of NPR's "On the Media" in the U.S.

    US administration gave Egypt little support when Morsi turned autocratic ,and the brotherhood subverted the popular will.
    Obama administration stood behind their wrong decision of supporting Moslem brothers ,as they thought brotherhoodcan deliver,and closed their eyes to the fact that the brotherhood,morally and physically terrorized the Egyptians.the administration turned its back to our fight against the terrorist fanatical Moslem brothers.

    The only problem is that they claim that the material was the reason that they needed to detain him, but it doesn't take 9 hours to confiscate the electronics. Hence, this action was clearly harassment.

    Dear Hala, you are beautiful Arab woman. Search for KOOOLcr. Perhaps one day your race will find peace and solace, despite decades of meddling, simply for black gold, and the folly of democracy.

    Targeting Journalists and Reporters,

    UK acted the Skandinavian way. In Skandinavia when a Government is against a reporter or someone devoted on something similiar they quickly arrest the person as a terrorist. Miranda was not the first reporter hold by authorities for over 4 hours and asked to choose between answer questions or go to prision. the past 8 days have been a night merry for reporters. In France at the Airport of Charles du Gaut a Reporter was by a airline prevented from travel and participate in a major political event.. Reliable sources are certain that an influencial politician was behind that behaviour. The difference between what was done to Miranda and the case in Paris is that UK authiorities allowed him into the country and acted, while in the Pariscase, the Government behind, avoided International criticism by simply cooperate with one Ailine and get what they wanted.
