    I posted the original story on the front page, all full of outrage.  Bleah.

    I'm going to put an update on my post that the whole story is bullshit.


    No, Donny, these men are nihilists, there's nothing to be afraid of.

    •  But first triple-verify the retraction (none)
      Hey, you never know, and boy would we all look dumb if it turned out to actually be true!
      •  What? (4.00)
        We should we hold the reaction, printed by the same paper that originally broke the story, to a higher standard then the original story?

        •  God, you can tell it's late (none)
          That should be "Why should we hold the retraction..."

          •  Yes, it is late (none)
            And at this point I don't know what or who to believe... ;-)
            •  The country was primed for a hoax like this.... (none)
              Just as it was when we were lied to about the presence of active nuclear programs in Iraq as well as Iraq's affiliation with Al Qaeda.

              •  You mean Iraq wasn't behind 9/11? (none)
                Now I've heard everything. Next thing I know you'll be telling me that Bush isn't a shoo-in for the Nobel prize (for literature--his usage of the English language is so, well, unique).
