Skip to comments.Is The 2005 Priest Story A Fraud?
Posted on 04/27/2006 8:49:23 AM PDT by Paine in the Neck
Update: In 2002 the WaPo called the International detention (prison) story vital - in 2005 they quote another official calling it a burden. In 2002 they informed people that Clinton initiated the practice of extraordinary rendition. In 2005, they made it look like a creation of George Bush.

Interesting questions are why the re-publication and why does this re-hash now get a Pulitzer?
I like the fact that this duplicitous articale gets pointede out, but do we really need to question the intent of the WaPo and Preist? seems rather obvious.
Good catch. In other words, the same story was published as news in 2002 and as propaganda in 2005. The Pulitzer Prize Committee ignored it when it was news, but gave it the prize when it was propaganda.
Once again, we see that the powers behind the scene INSTRUCT the Pulitzer Prize Committee who should get the award. And in that back scratching coterie of journalists, editors, politicians, and journalism professors, with the same people often moving from one area to another, in and out of academia or public service, the message always gets through.
The story appears to have been a lie. However, the publishing of that story brought hell to pay to some of our allies abroad.
The stories have melded together and I can't tell what is what anymore!
It has been speculated that the whole story was plastic cheese.
It's all one huge part of this puzzle. Thanks for the ping.
Macsmind has been keeping with everything.
I've been listening to the Senate all morning
My brain cells are fried
Can someone give me a summary of what that says?
BTW: The judge has denied the dismissal of charge against Libby.....there is a story line about it over at JOM.
...on the mother of all wrinkly prunes.
I don't know that MacRanger has the connections to identify what's taking place with Fitz. He's just following others that actually don't know either. MacRanger appears to have some very good connections at the DOJ...but Fitz is out of that loop being a SP and all. Until Fitz closes this perjury investigation up, I'll not rest easy.
Didn't read all of it, it's a little long, but will later, it looks pretty good.
Basically the 2005 Priest Pulitizer prize story was a nearly point by point rehash of a story the WaPo did in 2002.
Why reprint old news with new spin if not to advance an adgenda.
Aren't these the same people who say they don't want to cover the Irag documents because they are "old news".
"Basically the 2005 Priest Pulitizer prize story was a nearly point by point rehash of a story the WaPo did in 2002. "
That's basically it but a key piece of the original 2002 story missing from the 2005 version is that Clinton started the practice of secret rendition.
Perhaps dropping the reference to Clinton is what now qualifies it for a Pull-it-sir.
I'm lost too.
And this SURPRISES you?
If/When Hillary becomes Pres, it will beseen as a NECESSARY tol, while now it's an impeachable offense...
We've seen how these things work since the Reagan days...
ANYTHING Republicans do is evil, ANYTHING Dems do is done to save the planet.....
Thanks for the ping, Howlin.
Isn't this what they fire reporters for? Plagiarizing or re-writing old stories???
And here good ole Lefty Dana gets a Pulitzer prize. Kinda reminds me of Carter's Nobel prize...
Good to know the left still lives in the era of Clinton when it was ok to lie. /sarc
Jed Babbin says Fitz is gunning for Cheney.
Didn't they kinda do this with Nixon. They first got rid of his VP then him. I guess they think today they can pull the same thing off.
Adds to the strange timeline from her video about the thread on Free Republic and her 2004 article, doesn't it?
