So who is he? Al Zaidi is a correspondent for Al Baghdadiya, an independent Iraqi TV station, and has been detained at least twice by military forces (once by Americans) for unspecified charges. His brother claims that the attack was not planned, but a co-worker says it had been a dream of Al Zaidi's for some time. He faces two years in jail (if Bush presses charges).
