Letter From Bill Keller on The Times's Banking Records Report

So Bill Keller wrote a letter defending his paper’s running of the banking records story.

You can read it for yourself and I’m sure many bloggers and pundits will have many intelligent things to say about it. (Which we’ll probably link here.)

But since you value your time, you can skip all that and I’ll give you the Reader’s Digest version:

Dear Reader:

1) We have no reason to believe the program was illegal in any way.

2) We have every reason to believe it was effective at catching terrorists.

3) We ran the story anyway, screw you.

Bill Keller

If we find some more intelligent analysis we’ll link it here, but really you know everything you need to know about it.
