I wish it were not news to the millions of Americans who appear to believe just about any piece of nonsense fed to them by the administration via the press. This adminstration's MO appears to be to plant "information," usually via an unnamed source, in the press about some subject they'd like the public to believe X about, when Y is really the case. The story about X gets hype. Then, when it's found to be unsubstantiated, no one sees the small retraction or article or letter to the editor telling everyone it was nothing. Thus, we have folks believing Iraq was in on 9/11, that France was selling arms to Iraq through official channels post-1991, that mobile biological arms units have been discovered in Iraq, and so on, when, to the best of everyone's knowledge, none of the above is true.
