Current head of Islamic Media Unit
His first major media appearance was when he made an appeal to Iraqi citizens in Arabic during a Hostage crisis in Iraq 19 September 2004. 
A few days later after two of the American hostages were executed and the hostage deadline neared, there were signs of a shift by the Foreign Office, which distanced itself from the US - McLoghlin re-appealed to the hostage takers emphasizing that the Americans were holding the women, not the British: "The British forces in Iraq have no Iraqi female prisoners, not one." 
He reappeared in the media spotlight when photographs that allegedly show soldiers humiliating Iraqi prisoners were made public.  This was also his last appearance.
