AP Edits Burnin' Six Response Story -- To Delete Confirmation Of Burned Bodies By Morgue Workers!

Wow.

Confederate Yankee noticed the original response to criticism of its "Burning Sunnis" stories was down when linking it for another proposition. So Curt from Flopping Aces checked to see what they had changed when they reposted it.

They simply cut out their original claims of verification by independent sources of the burned bodies, without noting they had done so, or explaining what could have changed.

What the hell is this amateur hour crap? That response, and that independent confirmation, was supposed to buttress its original reporting. Now they simply edit it out without telling us.

I'm putting up the flaming skull. This could just be some kind of glitch, but I doubt it. Someone went in to that story to deliberately remove old reporting on "independent confirmation," so it seems AP is attempting to retract that by stealth deletion.
