American Samizdat

Saturday, January 19, 2008. *
Buried on p A12 of the Sat NYT, under "National Briefing", a collection of AP stories of crime, murder and untimely death around the US, in the very last clip, headed merely "Former Secretary on Waterboarding."

It seems that
the original Sect of Homeland Security, Tom Ridge, states unequivocally that "under any set of rules, ... waterboarding was, is, and will always be torture."

Why did they feel compelled to report it at all? What goes through the minds of NYT editors?
