New York Times re-runs retracted story from last year....

They were called on this garbage last year when they claimed that 1 in 7 Gitmo prisoners who were released "returned to terrorism" and they ended up having to retract the story. Maybe they thought no one would notice if they re-ran the garbage again this year....well Shane did.

And if this makes you as angry as it made me, let the New York Times know:

Here is what I had to say to them:

"I really cannot believe you are running a remake of last year’s fake story on the supposed recidivism rate of the Gitmo prisoners. In fact, if you read through the story it is clear that the NYT is hiding the fact that there really is no story here (administration denies that they have seen any hard evidence to support the numbers.) Who has seen that hard evidence? Perhaps Dick “I will make up anything I need to justify what I did” Cheney?

Decent newspapers are a rarity these days and it seems to me that the NYT is hanging by a thread."

Best regards,

I think you have described Obama well: "...just a better liar." The next step is to realise that we must cure ourselves of wanting to be conned by the old shell game of this Democrat or that Republican.
If they don't have a clear record of opposing ALL imperial wars and torture centres, et cetera, it doesn't matter how pretty their faces and how many glib slogans they can get suckers to chant. A warmonger is a warmonger.
I'm old enough to remember the election of LBJ, the "peace candidate" in 1964. You may have heard how that one turned out...
