The Record of the Paper

mediabistro.com: Articles: Excerpt: <I>The Record of the Paper</I>: "With respect to interrogations, and in a section titled 'Torture,' Ignatieff wrote (the words in parentheses are Ignatieff's): 'Permissible duress might include forms of sleep deprivation that do not result in lasting harm to mental health or physical health, together with disinformation and disorientation (like keeping prisoners in hoods) that would produce stress.' Ignatieff's article was written, printed, and put into the distribution pipeline for delivery to retail outlets and homes across the country too late for the Times to recall it following the CBS News broadcast on April 28, which showed for the first time photographs of tortured Iraqi detainees, including a hooded Iraqi standing on a box at Abu Ghraib prison."
