Michelle Malkin: Newsweek Lied, People Died

Catchy, isn't it? I'm not going to do a diatribe on this story. There are too many great bloggers already doing a great job. Michelle is a great source. She also has some speculation on who the anonymous source may have been....

Some sharp-eyed bloggers are looking at Sgt. Erik Saar, former Guantanamo Bay interrogator and co-author with Time magazine's Viveca Novak of a tell-all book about alleged abuses called Inside the Wire--just released and being promoted by the Washington Post and everywhere else.
Makes alot of sense. Heard him last week, and he certainly could be Isikoff's source. It once again brings up the whole issue of anonymous sourcing. That was okay when people trusted the MSM, but those days are dead and gone. When I read that the source was anonymous, I just assume the journalist is quoting himself and his own opinion.

Captain Ed has a great post on Newsweek's continued non-apology and excuses. This story isn't going away quickly, no matter how much Newsweek may be praying it will.
