Don't they read the newspapers?

Daniel Radosh

The New York Times today has two separate articles about the difficulties involved in issuing terror alerts. And yet neither one mentions the most relevant difficulty: that the FBI now admits our most recent alert was at least partly based on a lie. In fact, I don't think the Times has reported this fact at all (The Washington Post buried it, but at least, unlike the Times, it's not just letting its earlier, inaccurate reporting hang out there.
