For those of you who only get your news and news gossip via Bystander, the AP has defended its use of Capt. Jamil Hussein as a source, even though CENTCOM and the Iraqi government have no record of him. BOTW points to the AP letter:
The Associated Press denounces unfounded attacks on its story about six Sunni worshipers burned to death outside their mosque on Friday, November 24. The attempt to question the existence of the known police officer who spoke to the AP is frankly ludicrous and hints at a certain level of desperation to dispute or suppress the facts of the incident in question.
That's a little defensive, I think.
