Vintage Zerb

I'm sure that Bob will forgive me for treading on his patch but Antonia has the perfect demonstration as to why she - and the Toronto Star - are not to be trusted. Here's what she has up on her blog:

The New York Times' Thomas Friedman (registration required) says it's time to shut down ''the war-on-terrorism P.O.W. camp" at Guantanamo where over 100 prisoners have died, probably not from heart attacks:

Heres what Tom Friedman wrote:
And it is now obvious from reports in my own paper and others that the abuse at Guantánamo and within the whole U.S. military prison system dealing with terrorism is out of control. Tell me, how is it that over 100 detainees have died in U.S. custody so far? Heart attacks? This is not just deeply immoral, it is strategically dangerous.

Zerb wants her readers to believe that 100 people have died at Gitmo, Friedman actually said that 100 have died in US custody which, even if true, is not the same thing. Given that the link is in her post you have to wonder if Zerb can, well, read.
