Bush caught in yet another lie

May 27, 2003: a Pentagon-sponsored fact-finding mission issues a "field report" stating that two trailers found in Iraq had nothing to do with biological weapons.

May 29, 2003: Bush ignores the field report and declares, "We have found the weapons of mass destruction."

April 12, 2006 (morning): The Washington Post publishes this information, citing government officials and weapons experts who participated in the secret mission or had direct knowledge of it.

April 12, 2006 (afternoon): White House spokesman Scott McClellan calls the Washington Post's account "reckless reporting" and says it's "nothing more than rehashing an old issue that was resolved long ago."

McClellan is right about one thing: Bush's lying is an old issue. But it has yet to be resolved. We hope the Washington Post continues its reckless reporting until the situation IS resolved.

Kind of like they did with Watergate.
