The family of Steven Sotloff, the latest American journalist beheaded by ISIS, is reportedly “outraged” at the Obama administration for “deliberate leaks” they interpret as “an attempt to absolve the administration of inaction.” This reporting comes Wednesday from no less a source than the New York Times, which chose to bury the news under more than two dozen paragraphs:

…A person close to the Sotloff family expressed outrage at what he viewed as a pattern of deliberate leaks in Washington suggesting that Mr. Sotloff was killed the same day as Mr. Foley — a strategy he said the family sees as an attempt to absolve the administration of inaction…

…It wasn’t so long ago when major stars at The New York Times argued that anguished and angry mothers enjoyed an absolute moral authority over a sitting president — and answers.

Today the Times refuses to give these mothers a headline and then goes so far as to bury their outrage at the sitting president.

Democrats sure got it good.
