"President Bush next hour will respond to accusations that his administration manipulated intelligence about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction to justify the war, a senior administration official says. The president will "directly take on some of these false attacks that have been recently brought up by some Democratic leaders," the official said."
How did Bush handle "directly taking on" the issue? He said it's "deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began."
So that whole inquiry into whether the administration trumped up pre-war intelligence and basically lied to the American people to promote the war, and now over 2000 soldiers are dead? That's over. Case closed.
Long live the Imperial Emperor.
Whew, I know I feel better.
