NYT still stands by discredited story

Even though NBC has disputed the New York Times story about missing explosives in Iraq, they continue to run with it, probably because their buddies at the Kerry campaign are doing the same thing, even ignoring the NBC report:
But Kerry senior adviser Joe Lockhart fired back with a statement of his own, accusing the Bush campaign of "distorting" the NBC News report.

"In a shameless attempt to cover up its failure to secure 380 tons of highly explosive material in Iraq, the White House is desperately flailing in an effort to escape blame," Lockhart said. "It is the latest pathetic excuse from an administration that never admits a mistake, no matter how disastrous."

Lockhart did not elaborate on how the Bush campaign was distorting the NBC report.

Looks like the Grey Lady already had it's editorial ready to go too. Oh well, they won't let something like the facts get in the way of their agenda.
