Travesty: Bahrain F1 race returns

Pardon my French, but this is bullshit.  Let's hope teams, drivers, and fans boycott this race.

This is a piece from February.  Warning: Graphic images.

And what happened to the medical staff who treated the protestors?  They have been detained.

On the other hand, now the Bahraini officials will have to let reporters in (they've all been kicked out) and maybe they'll have to release the imprisoned event officials. The media blackout is what's allowing the al Khalifa's to persecute with impunity, with foreign cameras around they might have to back off.
