In re the commentary previously posted a few minutes ago in this slot (and now deleted):
Someone forwarded me a copy of an old story from last year as if it were new (I thought) under the title "Scathing report on Project GunRunner/Walker". My new analysis of an old story thus was completely wrong and I abjectly apologize to Mr. Isikoff for the error. While I am still waiting for Mr. Isikoff to notice fully the Gunwalker scandal, he does not deserve my caustic derision. I must say, though, that this is the first time I have been sandbagged in this whole affair. It will not happen again.
