The author expresses doubts on the lack of news coverage on a hostage mutiny staged by security guards at the U.S. Embassy in Liberia on April 22, 2004. He notes that only two short pieces from a Liberian website called "The Perspective" offers information regarding the mutiny. The first one, dated April 23, 2004, was written by Josephus Moses Gray, while the other one was a press release by Christina Porche of the U.S. Embassy in Monrovia. According to the author, the U.S. government and the media are conspiring to conceal such stories from the people.
