Everyone there is completely innocent, he says. Except for two guys who were in on the whole thing. What do you suppose the odds are that one or both of them were among the fifteen Saudis we released last week?

Captain Ed wonders why the AP would omit the passage about the two accomplices from its excerpts of the tape when they mentioned it in their article. The omission isn’t quite as glaring as he implies (he accuses the AP of using an ellipsis to cut off the sentence that mentions the accomplices, when in fact the elliptical sentence comes from an entirely different paragraph) but the larger point is a good one. What gives?
