Washington Headline of the Year!

CIA More Fully Denies Deception About Iraq” – in yesterday’s Washington Post.

The subhead should have read: “This Time We Are Not Lying Like Weasels – We Swear!”

The Post article on the CIA’s reaction to Ron Suskind’s revelations included this tidbit from the CIA’s prepared statement:
“To state what should be obvious, it is not the policy or practice of this Agency to violate American law.”
Obvious perhaps to some of the bootlickers in the DC press corps.

    Jim, so does this mean that the recent newspaper articles out of Switzerland, which stated that the Swiss Government destroyed more than 30,000 pages of evidence pertaining to the Tinner’s case, which itself involved the AQ Khan network was bogus?
    Well, knowing that now, I’ll sleep better at night knowing this.

    Jean – thanks for the update. I have not followed the Swiss developments.

    I hope the truth seeps out sooner rather than later. Especially before November 4th!
