THE PHONY PRISONER OF ABU GHRAIB

John Podhoretz at NRO says,

The New York Times suffered a major embarrassment when it turned out that the man they said was under the hood in the horrendous and evil Abu Ghraib photos is a phony. One key sentence in the paper's correction: "Lawyers for former prisoners at Abu Ghraib vouched for him." What? Human rights lawyers lying to the New York Times? For many, the very term "human rights lawyer" seems to suggest an individual so above reproach as to be nearly saintly. Maybe journalists will be a little more careful to trust them implicitly in the future. (Oh, stop laughing.)

Why don't you use permalinks for your links to the corner on NRO rather than the link to the overall site.

Thanks for the correction. I normally do click the individual link, but forgot in this case.
