Hillary Attacked from the Left on Torture Comment

Greg Sargent has links to some on the left who went after something Senator Clinton seems to have said on torture – at least according to the Washington Post:

Clinton was similarly vague about how she would handle special interrogation methods used by the CIA. She said that while she does not condone torture, so much has been kept secret that she would not know unlesselected what other extreme measures interrogators are using, and therefore could not say whether she would change or continue existing policies. “It is not clear yet exactly what this administration is or isn’t doing. We’re getting all kinds of mixed messages,” Clinton said. “I don’t think we’ll know the truth until we have a new president. I think [until] you can get in there and actually bore into what’s been going on, you’re not going to know.”

Greg also notes that the Senator’s campaign quickly responded by sending over the expanded version of what she really said. Greg ends his blog post with this:

There’s no clear reason why WaPo shouldn’t have included the extra sentence. Err on the side of more inclusion, not less, especially in a situation as sensitive as this one. Post full transcripts. There’s plenty of space for this on the internets. No reason not to do it.

Greg is being kind enough to assume that the WaPo is interested in real journalism and not Faux News.
