The Grey Lady Shows Herself for the Slut She Is

This is just ridiculous. Note that Bolton is identified as the 'UN Ambassador 205-2006' with no mention of the fact that he was recalled because Congress wouldn't confirm him. Note that John Yoo is identified as 'a deputy attorney general' with no mention of the torture memos. Note that both these men, who whored for an administration more contemptuous of Congressional oversight than any in recent memory if not ever, are now suddenly whining that the Obama administration will 'bind America' to those hideous foreign diplomatic agreements without garnering proper Congressional approval - despite the fact that that Administration isn't even in office yet.

This is what is called brazen revisionism and image repair spin. The fact that the Times doesn't call them on it anywhere in the headers or footers is just unforgivable.
