JS Story Doesn't Add Up

The text provided by the JS writer does not correlate with the quotation of Feingold.

Sen. Russ Feingold said Wednesday that former Vice President Dick Cheney is “misleading the American people” by claiming that harsh interrogation techniques on suspected terrorists averted additional attacks on the country after Sept. 11.

“Nothing I have seen, including the two documents to which former Vice President Cheney has repeatedly referred, indicates that the torture techniques authorized by the last administration were necessary or that they were the best way to get information out of detainees,” Feingold said during a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing.

Feinie does NOT state whether 'additional attacks were (or were not) averted.' All the quote says is that they may not have been necessary, or may not have been the best methods.

So. Is the JS writer simply inserting her own spin? Or did some editor at the paper delete the important language?

What WAS the price of JS stock yesterday??
