GEORGE FLIES THE COOP -- AND THE WHITE HOUSE ADMITS HIS STATEMENT WAS "INCORRECT"



Boy, now isn't this a cowardly way to admit you lied?:

Asked about the accuracy of the president's statement this morning, Mr. Fleischer said,"We see nothing that would dissuade us from the president's broader statement." But when pressed, he said he would clarify the issue later today. Tonight, after Air Force One had departed, White House officials issued a statement in Mr. Fleischer's name that made clear that they no longer stood behind Mr. Bush's statement.
Read the whole story. This one's not over. W, Cheney, and the boys have been lying about this one recently.

I like what TBogg says about this:

After the 9/11 scramble to Offut Air Force Base, I guess we should call this one Chicken Run II: Chicken George Flies the Coop.
I'm off to class and then a dentist's appointment.
