Protecting Your Brand: Nose Edition

This detail has been in virtually every story I've read/heard on yesterday's Guantanamo court session:
In public for the first time since 2002, Mr. Mohammed took a moment to scrutinize the work of a courtroom sketch artist hired by news organizations who weren’t allowed to photograph the hearing.
“He didn’t like the nose,” the artist, Janet Hamlin, told Reuters, adding that he suggested that she use the infamous 2003 capture photograph as a reference. Ms. Hamlin decided to revise the drawing.
Who knew you got to approve your courtroom portrait?  Apparently I wasn't the only one interested as I was able to find a few stories on the exchange, the award for best nose related headline goes to the Sydney Morning Herald: Mastermind can pick his own nose.  Classic.
