Fictional Story of the Day
FBI officials, whose names were blacked out, indicated that senior military officials, including former Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, were aware of and in some cases had approved of putting hoods on prisoners, threatening them with violence and subjecting them to humiliating treatment. —from an FBI memo obtained by the ACLU
Mark Sherman of the AP writes,
Wolfowitz is now president of the World Bank. Kevin Kellems, a spokesman for the World Bank, said Thursday, "This old story is fictional and is authored by anonymous people who have no real knowledge of what his role was."Put another way, the story is tired and the FBI officials are liars, refuse to reveal themselves and don't know what's going on anyway.
