In praise of Helen Thomas

By Michael J.W. Stickings

From TP:

On April 9, ABC News reported that in 2002, President Bush's most senior advisers approved the use of harsh interrogation tactics. Days later, Bush confirmed to ABC he "approved" of the tactics. Sadly, the media have largely ignored the story since it was first reported. Moreover, not one White House press corps reporter has raised the issue with the Bush administration... until [yesterday].

And it was Helen Thomas who did it.
