Was the LA Times punked?

Harper’s Magazine had a piece on Monday by Scott Horton saying the LA Times got played in their Sunday article regarding the Obama administration’s stance on renditions as a  counter-terrorism tool.

The Los Angeles Times just got punked. Its description of the European Parliament’s report is not accurate… But that’s the least of its problems. It misses the difference between the renditions program… and the extraordinary renditions program which was introduced by Bush 43 and clearly shut down under an executive order issued by President Obama in his first week…

These stories are regularly sourced to unnamed current or former CIA officials and have largely run in right-wing media outlets. However, now we see that even the Los Angeles Times can be taken for a ride.
