Greate lede writing: Petra Bartosiewicz

When I first read the U.S. government’s complaint against Aafia Siddiqui, who is awaiting trial in a Brooklyn detention center on charges of attempting to murder a group of U.S. Army officers and FBI agents in Afghanistan, the case it described was so impossibly convoluted—and yet so absurdly incriminating—that I simply assumed she was innocent. [Harper's, Nov 2009]

I'm going to buy the issue on the strength of that sentence.
