Recycle a story; give it some anti-Bush flavor; win a Pulitzer

Don Surber:
Dan Riehl asks was Dana Priest's Pulitzer Prize-winning story on secret prisons a repeat of her 2002 reporting? Good question. But the 2005 rendition of her 2002 story left out this paragraph, according to Riehl:
The Clinton administration pioneered the use of extraordinary rendition after the bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.
Riehl has a lot more in his examination. Read it.

The Washington Post is a good newspaper. Surely Riehl should ask its omsbudswoman to explain this.
