Hypocrisy Watch: Billmon on Abu Ghraib Information
I'm not a huge fan of Billmon, but his ability to find and juxtapose contradictory information, and to let that juxtaposition speak for itself, is brilliant. His latest post at Tom Tomorrow contrasts Rumsfeld's remarks on the value of open information with reportage and comments on the Abu Ghraib abuse cases. What makes it all the more galling is that the adminstration is trying to cloak it's coverup in the very rules about protection of prisoners and soldiers that they violated, and by and large, Republicans are letting them.
