    an extraordinary story in the NYT this morning, proof that even though it does make big mistakes often, it does get some great stories in now and then.

    the article details the tribulations and struggles of an innocent detainee in the highly secret detention program in homeland America... his arresting FBI agent realized days after the arrest this gentleman was innocent, and had spent months trying to win his release. the abuse is horrible, and widespread, but one can only hope that other detainees keep the same attitude that this detainee did....

    from article:
    Mr. Bajracharya said he would be willing to testify against those who mistreated him if he were asked, though he fears what the government would do to him if he did so. Nonetheless, he remains grateful that he experienced America.

    "What happened to me could have been an isolated incident," he said. "I STILL BELIEVE THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD."
