Bill Keller, after having failed to make the sheeple undertstand the NYT's motives for publishing the SWIFT program details, gives it one more shot. Entitled "Let Me Make It Simple For You Morons," Keller uses his first foray into guestblogging to try to correct the record. Naturally, he falls back on Bay of Pigs and the Kennedy's.
After The Times played down its advance knowledge of the Bay of Pigs invasion, President Kennedy reportedly said he wished we had published what we knew and perhaps prevented a fiasco. His brother felt similarly after we failed to alert the public to the non-seaworthiness of the '66 Olds Delmont.
Pretty simple really. I can't believe I didn't get it before.
