Red Cross Found Abuses at Abu Ghraib Last Year

Do you know where The New York Times placed this story today?

Page A13.

Never mind the fact that it's one of the most important prison-abuse stories because it strongly suggests that abuse was policy and that officials were informed about it quite a while ago. The Times buried it.

I guess it wasn't considered as important as the front-page story on fish-shooting in Vermont.

(Yes, The Wall Street Journal reported the story yesterday -- but that's no excuse. The Washington Post, by the way, put its Red Cross story on page 1.)
