Asia Times on Rove & Bolton Lied & Niger Forgery
Asia Times Online: Illusions, when rigidly defended, breed encounters with the law. Thus did a mistaken revolution in nuclear policy, proceeding under the guise of the "war on terror", produce the lies that produced the war that produced the whistleblowing that produced the smears that produced the blown cover that produced the cover-up that produced the legal investigation that produced the political and legal crisis that now swirls around Karl Rove. Whoa. It's hugely sad that nobody in our press could write this out so simply and powerfully. Reuters: The State Dept reversed itself on Thursday night and acknowledged that Bush's UN ambassador nominee Bolton gave Congress inaccurate information about an investigation he was involved in. Nice... A liar under oath. The Hill: Josh Marshall says: It is not just the Plame/Rove saga, but "the big story, the WH’s knowing use of phony intelligence about an Iraqi nuclear program to game the country into war. And behind even that, those pesky Niger uranium forgeries. Where did they come from? Who created them? And why?" Precisely... could this be what Bolton lied about?
