There's been this, too, from Sept. 2010: "Nation national security  
correspondent Jeremy Scahill today testified before the House  
Judiciary Committee on the US's shadow wars in Pakistan, Yemen, and  
elsewhere."

Scahill had published before and was fiercely attacked; now he could  
back up every disputed point he had made his stories, using the War  
Logs.
