NY Times mea culpa....sorta

After a sensational (and false) story on May 21st that claimed one in seven gitmo prisoners who were released "returned" to the battlefield the NY Times is now admitting its error... although they still will not admit that they were spun.
The false story about the recidivism rate was "leaked" by the pentagon during the middle of a congressional debate about closing Guantanamo.... as a result of this and other scare tactics our wimpy senate voted to withhold money for closing Guantanamo. Shame on the NY Times.... and of course shame on those 93 wimpy senators.
Click on the title for the NY Times "correction."
