The headlines make it seem as if it is a retraction of the original story, but the Newsweek article that they are talking about says something else entirely. The incident may well have happened, only the exact official report that it is mentioned in is in question.
Other blogs mentioning this with more clarity than I am capable of, given the emotional gut reaction I had to the original report:
Kevin Drum (my fav political blogger that I've been following since before he moved to larger audiences)
Moon of Alabama
I'm not going to read more reactions or explanations. I need something that triggers a more calm and possibly soothing mood.
