According to Rozen, some of the factual premises underlying the original story were simply false. Gonzales supposedly went easy on Harman because he needed her help in keeping the NSA domestic-spying scandal out of the papers. But in fact the story had already run when the purported intercept took place.
Has the press allowed itself, once again, to be played? (If not by Goss and his friends, then by the FBI agents enraged that their case fell apart.)
Think about this story the next time someone tries to tell you about the power of the “Israel lobby” to suppress unfavorable stories.
