More on the Maliki interview

Patterico notes that that Der Spiegel admits to rewriting its Maliki interview, but stands by the essential accuracy of their account. (Fake but accurate!)

Also the NYT’s claim that Der Spiegel “provided” them the audio isn’t really true. Der Spiegel won’t release the audio, but will play it over the phone for a “journalist”. (Whatever that means in the Internet age.)

On the other hand, Patterico agrees with my point that the “mistranslation” is largely a red herring.
