IS “ANONYMOUS” REALLY ALSO “ANONYMOUS” TO THE NYT?

Does a reading of the Interview Statement of NY Times Op-Ed Editor Mr. Dao lead one to infer that the NYT does not know “for a fact” who “Anonymous” is?

1. “The Op-Ed article was submitted to Times opinion editors last week through an intermediary, Mr. Dao said.”

2.  So the NYT had no direct contact with “Anonymous” !

3. So is the intermediary both the info source and the verification source of the NYT being “…confident that they were who they said they were,” [Mr. Dao] said.”  ?

 4. Is this not analogous to one important criticism of the Steele Dossier – that the intermediary, Steele, is both the info source and the verification source ?

Huh?  Kind’a sticks in your craw.
