Well, it's good to see the administration is finally coming clean on the whole WMD-we faked the reasons for going to war-mushroom clouds over New York-Ahmad Chalabi is a trusted source for intel thing; it's all coming out now.
Today Scott McClellan said:
"This was a report based on a single anonymous source that could not substantiate the allegation that was made," McClellan added. [Curveball?] "The report has had serious consequences. People have lost their lives. The image of the United States abroad has been damaged. I just find it puzzling."
Condi Rice was shocked!
"It's appalling that this story got out there."
Rummy got right down to it,
"People lost their lives. People are dead. People need to be very careful about what they say, just as they need to be careful about what they do." (Those WMD are still a little northeast, somewhat, of Baghdad, right Rummy?)
Yes indeed, it sure is terrible when you get it wrong and people die. And on top of that, America's image around the world is damaged.
If it hadn't been for that damn report in Newsweek, none of this would have happened.
This is the Dan Rather syndrome all over again. Now whenever anyone accuses the government of torture they'll just say it's the liberal left media making up stories just like Newsweek.
