QUOTE: The journalistic back story to these NSA stories is an extremely revealing glimpse into how the nation's largest newspapers, which largely had little problem running poorly sourced and false stories about Iraq and WMD, sat on or buried stories that questioned this administration. Remember that the New York Times, which first broke the story of the wiretapping in December 2005, has yet to explain in any detail why it sat on the story for a full year after the government asked it to.

QUOTE: But Jabour's experience -- also chronicled by Human Rights Watch, which yesterday issued a report on the fate of former "black site" detainees -- often does not accord with the portrait the administration has offered of the CIA system, such as the number of people it held and the threat detainees posed. Although 14 detainees were publicly moved from CIA custody to the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, scores more have not been publicly identified by the U.S. government, and their whereabouts remain secret.
