The Freed NYT Reporters

by Jonah Goldberg

Their account is gripping, but I could have either done without this paragraph entirely or used a bit more discussion clearing away the stench of moral equivalence:

Over the years, all of us had seen men detained, blindfolded and handcuffed at places like Abu Ghraib, or corralled after some operation in Iraq or Afghanistan. Now we were the faceless we had covered perhaps too dispassionately. For the first time, we felt what it was like to be disoriented by a blindfold, to have plastic cuffs dig into your wrists, for hands to go numb.

The Corner

The one and only.
