According to the Washington Post, Condi Rice is finally coming clean on the 'how could we have known they'd use planes as missiles?'lie she's been spouting since 9/11. Did I say lie? I meant she "misspoke."
By the way, the White House says she'll testify at the 9/11 investigation, but only in private and not under oath. Well, you can see why she doesn't want to take the oath.
"Democratic commission member Richard Ben-Veniste disclosed this week that Rice had asked, in her private meetings with the commission, to revise a statement she made publicly that "I don't think anybody could have predicted that those people could have taken an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center . . . that they would try to use an airplane as a missile." Rice told the commission that she misspoke; the commission has received information that prior to Sept. 11, U.S. intelligence agencies and Clarke had talked about terrorists using airplanes as missiles."
