bloggers had pointed out the manner in which the New York Times doesn't even perform BASIC verification before rushing to print.

Their corrections are also normally buried rather deep in the paper where most who saw the original simply never see it.

the village is a stronghold of terrorists and some were actually killed.

The main problem seemed to be that the Predator was seen for several days before the bombing and, if I were the number 2 man, I would have stayed away too.
