NYT Breaks TNR Lt. Stephen Glass Story, A Week After Everyone Else

Just noting it for the record; there's nothing here new or worthy of your time.

Except for this tasty nugget:

The magazine granted anonymity to the writer to keep him from being punished by his military superiors and to allow him to write candidly, Mr. Foer said. He said that he had met the writer and that he knows that he is, in fact, a soldier.

Well! Talk about rigorous factual verification! That new system they put in place after Stephen Glass is really bangin' on all cylinders now! They've confirmed, without question, the man is in fact a soldier.

Also confirmed: He is bidpedal, carbon-based, and possesses the preferred number of heads (1).
