Some sharp-eyed bloggers are looking at Sgt. Erik Saar, former Guantanamo Bay interrogator and co-author with Time magazine’s Viveca Novak of a tell-all book about alleged abuses called Inside the Wire–just released and being promoted by the Washington Post and everywhere else.
Milblogger Greyhawk writes:
This is America, and we all have freedom of speech, and nobody will riot in front of the offices of Time, Newsweek, or Penguin publishers over this new outrage. So cash your checks with pride, Viv. You too, Eric. The prisoners in Guantanamo may or may not get over the shame of being teased by women in thongs, but 14 Afghanis are certainly and permanently dead.
The Anchoress has another soldier’s take on the Newsweek riots.
Not only have Isikoff and Baker, and Whitaker, put American soldiers and Marines in further danger, now they blame the military for not censoring them. It’s pathetic, it’s ridiculous, and Newsweek should be ashamed of themselves for this offensive defense of its incompetence and abjectly biased reporting.
Repeat: They should cough up the source.
Update: Talked to Penguin Press this afternoon. “No, absolutely not, Erik Saar was not the source” for Newsweek.
So, who was it?blog comments powered by Disqus
