Media Correction of the Day

Scott Horton in Harper's magazine, April 28th:
My recent post on a Senate document concerning the approval of torture techniques requires correction in two respects. First, as already noted, Ed Whelan, former Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel, has categorically denied attending the July 2003 meeting mentioned there. Second, I wrongly described his writing at the National Review as "defenses of torture enablers." This phrase is both vague and inaccurate, and I apologize for any misunderstanding it may have caused. Whelan has never written anything for the National Review in defense of torture or torture enablers.
