Howard Kurtz "Corrects;" Report Does Not Vindicate Newsweek
— Ace

See the update to Instapundit's post on the matter; Howard Kurtz emails to correct the "misimpression" that the report has susbstantiated the Newsweek story.

Thanks to the National Journal's Blogometer.

Update: So, the Newsweek story was unconfirmed. Oddly enough, it turns out that the story about those 15-17 Afghans killed in the riots was unconfirmed, too, although the MSM (and bloggers, too) ran with it.

LGF asks: where are the bodies? And no one seems to be producing them.

1 "Where are the bodies?" Don't be fooled, Ace-- they only moved the headstones.

4 ok, ok, ok, -- they were rioting about a Koran that was not in a crapper and then they didn't kill anyone; but they're rioting again?

5 The inability to produce the bodies says little about whether there actually are bodies to be produced. It is the Muslim way to remove bodies and bury them as quickly as possible, making, among other things, reliable body-counts from battles difficult. Furthermore, Muslims would be extremely reluctant to "produce" already buried bodies just to prove that reports of their loved ones' demise have not been exagerated.
