Richard Clarke claimed that on September 12, 2001, in the White House situation room, George W. Bush pressured him to find a connection between the attacks and Iraq.
The White House denied it.
Scott McClellan, the White House Press secretary, laughably said that there was no record that President Bush was even IN the situation room on that day
Bush wasn't in the situation room on September 12th, 2001? REALLY?
Was he saving the room for some OTHER situation?
No, NOT really. Two days ago, the White House changed its story and acknowledged that the meeting did, indeed, take place.
This is, basically, an admission of lying. But don’t expect them to call it that, and don’t expect the press to call it that.
In the last week, the White House has said that Clarke was out of the loop and that he was IN the loop.
They say that Rice can't talk to Congress, but she can talk to reporters.
They claim Bush didn't ask Clarke to find an Iraq connection, and then they admit that he did.
They say that they have “nothing to hide.”
But they ACT like they have EVERYTHING to hide.
