Something to hide

Reader comment on item: Should We Believe Rashad Hussain?

A quote that has been subsequently removed must mean that whatever was said will incriminate the person who made the quote. Also a quote that has been attributed to someone (such as Dr. Pipes' supposed Palestinian quote) which is in fact, misquoted, is just as damaging. This only goes to show that once something has been said or written and either recorded or printed, it can either be distorted or heavily edited and changed to either hide the evidence or to damage the speaker or writer. The speaker knows exactly what was spoken, and the writer knows exactly what was written; sooner or later, the first will be discovered and the latter exonerated.
