WSJ on why it published The Story

According to the editors of the Wall Street Journal, they were never asked not to publish the SWIFT story. Senior government officials briefed them with some unclassified details, since they knew that the NYT was goign to go ahead and publish it anyway. This is key: They say that if they had known that the government had asked the Times to spike the story, they would not have run it.

Too bad the Times doesn't have their sense of civic duty.
