The government changes its story

Whatever you think of the killing of Osama bin Laden, the latest details seem to justify RAW's cynicism about whether it is the instinct of government officials to tell the truth. The Obama administration has now admitted that its initial account of what happened contained a number of fibs, as the Washington Post reports.

As Glenn Greenwald commented on his Twitter feed, "2nd day truth never erases 1st day unchallenged government propaganda."

If you agree with RAW's ideas on peace and civil liberties, Grennwald is well worth following on Twitter (@ggreenwald -- he's a liberal, by the way, not a libertarian). I'm on Twitter, too (@jacksontom.)
