How the New York Times sneakily editors its articles on line

"The Taliban’s suspicions about vaccination workers were aggravated by the case of Shakil Afridi, a doctor from the tribal areas who was paid by the Central Intelligence Agency to run a bogus hepatitis vaccination campaign near Osama bin Laden’s house in Abbottabad in the run-up to the May 2011 American commando raid that killed the Qaeda leader. Dr. Afridi has been sentenced to 33 years in prison for treason."  This paragraph was drafted quite differently (and comically) until an hour ago.  It basically said that the CIA's men claimed to run a vaccination campaign to enter Bin Laden's house. It did not say that the campaign was well beyond the house.
