And the MSM Coyly Deceives Again

        In September, 2003, as the Plamegate mess was starting, Bush said that anyone who "committed a crime" in the affair would be fired.

        In June of 2004, a reporter asked Bush if he stood by his pledge to fire anyone involved in the leak of Plame's name.  Bush made the mistake of not treating the reporter as a hostile liar, and said he did — or maybe he did.  The reporter actually asked on question, interrupted W. in the middle of his answer, and threw in a second question.  Bush's answer was taken to apply to the second question, rather than the first, for no reason I can see.

        Then, in July of this year, Bush emphasized his original pledge: he would fire anyone who committed a crime.

        Now, head over here, and see the Washington Post spins this.

        And then maybe write the Post's reader representative (ombudsman@washpost.com) and ask: incompetence, or lies?

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED — AND WILL BE!
