Hudson Mohawk Indymedia has produced a definitive account of the
whirlwind of events surrounding Wafaa Bilal's controversial art exhibit,
"Art and Terrorism" goes beyond the sound bites to find out what
happened when an Iraqi artist came to Troy, NY only to be censored--not

mis-characterized as terrorist propaganda by undergraduate bloggers.
When the exhibition was given refuge by The Sanctuary for Independent
Media, the city government responded by shutting down the space.
