For the past year, Iraqi investigative reporter Oday Hatem has been working for The Committee to Protect Journalists trying to determine what has happened to the two-dozen journalists captured by the Islamic State when its forces overran the cities of Mosul and Tikrit.  Hatem found three had been killed, three were still missing and 18 were still captives.  But could the story be told?  Would publicity endanger their lives or those of their families? Sherif Mansour, the Mideast Coordinator for The Committee told KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE, he and the Committee's leadership carefully weighed those questions before publishing their report.
