Mordechai VanunuVanunu is back in prison this morning for 6 months after he repeatedly disregarded warnings and the terms of his release. After spending 16 years in prison and getting released in 2004, Vanunu was giving foreign journalists interviews and contacting people over the Internet…Out of the 16 years he spent in prison, 11 years were in solitary confinement. He is now unable to leave Israel and I am wondering about the value of keeping here.

This guy is a technician and honestly what he has to offer today is all available on the Internet. It seems to me like one of these cases where no one in government is actually taking a hard look at this from a different angle. The more energy and resources that are poured into keeping Vanunu down the more he flourishes. Leaving him alone would actually render him useless and as time goes by his value as news would diminish.

Maybe he’ll move to Minnesota…
