Born at the Crest of the Empire

Thursday, May 21, 2009


Let's not miss the fact that the NYTimes story I linked skeptically below, "1 in 7 Freed Detainees Rejoins Fight," has been somewhat rewritten or at least reframed.

With Dick Cheney and his supporters citing this specific story as part of their defense, it is important to recognize that this is an exact echo of how Dick Cheney has always played the credibility of the NYTimes. He would order an ally to release the leak, and then cite the story in interview or speech as independent corroboration.

Incredibly, the NYTimes is still playing along.

As I said this morning. "Bad, bad, NYTimes."
