AtriosState Dept admits Bolton gave inaccurate answers

This Reuters article re: John Bolton is obviously from the Bizzarro-America...because it's getting NO PLAY here in Bush-America.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The State Department reversed itself on Thursday night and acknowledged that President Bush's U.N. ambassador nominee gave Congress inaccurate information about an investigation he was involved in.
In other words...he lied to the Senate.

A BIG DEAL in Bizzarro-America...but not here.
The acknowledgment came after the State Department had earlier insisted nominee John Bolton's "answer was truthful" when he said he had not been questioned or provided information to jury or government investigations in the past five years.

"When Mr. Bolton completed his form during the Senate confirmation process he did not recall being interviewed by the State Department inspector general. Therefore his form as submitted was inaccurate in this regard and he will correct the form," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.
Well if he didn't recall...that's cool.
Earlier, Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware said he had information Bolton was interviewed as part of a State Department-CIA joint investigation on intelligence lapses that led to the Bush administration's pre-Iraq war claim that Iraq tried to buy uranium from Niger.
Does anyone care about this stuff? I mean...Jesus.

No?

Because I'll write about other junk.

I happen to know - from very good sources - that Lindsey Lohan DOES party too much, and that my friend Rob "M20" Thomas IS NOT gay, and that Tom & Katie WILL ADOPT at some point in the future.

How about that?

"Yes!"

What about this?

Senate's Leader Veers From Bush Over Stem Cells

"Nope. Not important."
WASHINGTON, July 28 - In a break with President Bush, the Senate Republican leader, BILL FRIST, has decided to SUPPORT A BILL to expand federal financing for embryonic STEM CELL RESEARCH, a move that could push it closer to passage and force a confrontation with the White House, which is threatening to veto the measure.

*

While human embryonic stem cell research is still at a very early stage, the limitations put in place in 2001 will, over time, slow our ability to bring potential new treatments for certain diseases," Mr. Frist says, according to a text of the speech provided by his office Thursday evening. "Therefore, I believe the president's policy should be modified."
TRANSLATION: "We're being stupid here. There's SO MUCH money to be made with stem cell 'research.' 'Specially if we come up with some brand spankin' new 'treatments.' We'll all get...so fucking rich that...I think the President should, you know, rethink his position. I mean, he's an oil guy, I know, but once we show him the numbers, I'm sure he'll come around. Jim Dobson, too."

Frist is in the business of medicine, BTW. The for-profit business of medicine.

More later...
