curiouser and curiouser
For the fourth time on my memory, a story from The Onion makes it to real life. (And again!)

The others:

Onion, 4-8-98; BBC, 6-9-98
Onion, 8-2-00; FOX, 6-24-02.
Onion, 11-8-00 (I'm pretty sure this appeared before 11-7).
Onion, 9-29-06; NYTimes, 07-21-09:
"A footnote in a recently released 2005 Justice Department legal memorandum said that the C.I.A. inspector general had found in the 2004 report that interrogators used waterboarding with greater frequency and a larger volume of water than seemed to be approved by the Justice Department."

One more from The Weekly Week:

Weekly Week, 08-27-98; NYTimes, 09-13-07; Ukrainian news (in Russian).

And more: Weekly Week, 05-07-09; Boston Globe, 10-26-09

Some more: Onion; NYTimes
