Why would a serious journalistic enterprise take the word of Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch on something like Abu Ghraib without even checking with the Pentagon, which has undoubtedly performed the most comprehensive investigation into the Abu Ghraib matter?
This suggests that the Gray Lady is either (a) no longer a serious journalistic enterprise, or (b) persona non grata at the Pentagon, or both.
I think it's only a matter of time (assuming present management continues in authority) before the NYT morphs into the Weekly World News dressed up.
