I was reading the New York Times this morning, which rightfully gets the distinction of best newspaper in the world, and this article regarding the CIA's interviewing and pursuit of high-level Al-Quada types piqued my interest.
This is the story behind the capture and subsequent interrogation of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed. It's a great piece of reporting and writing, and shows a piece of journalism that pretty much only a newspaper could do.
I think the most intriguing part was how the lead investigator is now working in the private sector. Not to mention, his relative inexperience before conducting the interrogation. Seriously, this is a must read if you want a look inside what exactly the federal government has been doing since its pursuit of al Quada took form after the 9/11 attacks.
