which makes clear that this is preliminary information.
Contrast that with that later in the same article Greenwald cites CNN as follows:
That's not a completely fair citation since the original article does NOT include the italicized emphasis; that is yet another of Greenwald's insertion but this one he does not even acknowledge.
Finally, note his emphasis on the importance of just one unnamed official to make his point while earlier in the same article he castigated the Times for the use of *two* sources. I conclude that Greenwald is not a reliable source for political commentary.
