Dirty Tricks Never Go Out of Style
While I haven't seen a lick of news on this in the US, it's evidently the major story this week around the rest of the world. Can't even imagine why.
Not even the NY Times cares. This is a treasure, when asked why they haven't reported on it: "Well, it's not that we haven't been interested," New York Times deputy foreign editor Alison Smale said Wednesday night, nearly 96 hours after the Observer broke the story. "We could get no confirmation or comment" on the memo from U.S. officials." So I guess the NYT has changed its whole "publish the information for the world to read and decide for itself" policy since the 70's.
