(FOX NEWS) Pentagon officials are scrambling to figure out, as Donald Rumsfeld put it,"How Martin Bashir of all people" could break into a level 5 maximum security U.S. military prison in Baghdad and interview, videotape and record Saddam Hussein for over 15 minutes. Martin Bashir, famous for his Michael Jackson interview is now currently himself under arrest in custody at an undisclosed location charged with trespassing inside a United States military installation located on foreign soil.
FOX news, possessing the lone copy of the poor quality but viewable video mp3 recorded by Bashir has been ordered by both the Pentagon and Department of Defense to not broadcast the video emailed to them by Bashir before his arrest but FOX says, "We're going live with it anyway."
FOX yesterday released a brief transcript of part of the Bashir/Hussein interview to the wire services ..
