"...all of whom worked on a May 7, 2012, story that revealed details about a CIA operation in Yemen which stopped an alleged terror plot. AP had delayed publication of the story at the government’s request...."

There it is folks. Didnt write the story at the request of the gov.

The state is controlling what info you get, and what you dont, and spinning it out of control. Im not saying this hasnt been going on for a very very long time, but Im saying it can no longer be ignored, and therefore can no longer be trusted.

Its time Americans start governing themselves.

Occupy Everything.

The entire thing is somewhat ludicrous. I'm going to tell you why. I actually knew that we were in Yemen long before the AP story came out in 2012. So, did a lot of people. We knew before the date on listed on this: http://digitaljournal.com/article/298790

In fact, there were op-eds posted in a Yemen newspaper long before that said.......Al-Queda is not the problem here. In fact, I think there was a human rights organization that was investigating. If I have some time, I might go hunt it down.

I'll give Jay Carney this much: He can spin some bullshit.

Ive always been amazed at how well these guys can just spin and spin and spin.

Ofcourse we dont get to see the times where they get hung up, so who knows.
