A Bunch of Bull


WaPo reports:

Bush said the CIA's doubts about the charge -- that Iraq sought to buy "yellowcake" uranium ore in Africa -- were "subsequent" to the Jan. 28 State of the Union speech in which Bush made the allegation.

The President would have us believe everything was hunky dory leading up to the SOTU. But as the WaPo continues:

Bush's position was at odds with those of his own aides, who acknowledged over the weekend that the CIA raised doubts that Iraq sought to buy uranium from Niger more than four months before Bush's speech.

That jives with what the NYTimes notes:

[I]f the White House's changing — and sometimes contradictory — time line of events leading up to the speech is to be believed, Ms. Rice's aides knew as early as October that some underlying evidence was suspect. The C.I.A., according to that time line, changed its assessment of the reliability of that evidence three times in four months — enough to make clear that there was reason to doubt the quality of the evidence.

16 little words, eh? How many words are contained in the lies of this botched attempt at covering up yet another disarmed casus belli?
