Another Laughable Miscue By TAPPED!

I will exploit a rare opportunity to agree with Skippy. C'mon, folks, clap for the Kangaroo.

UPDATE: "Another" miscue? YES, TAPPED has been caught in a mistake. Well, to be fair, time has passed them by, but we will leave "fair and balanced" to others - "unfair and unbalanced" it is, here anyway!

The mistake: Spinsanity highlights an updated UPI story, and wonders whether Robert Scheer should maybe try to stay "au courant" with his reporting. Well, we have the same question about this TAPPED story, which relies on the UPI story to "suggest" that Bush lied in his 2003 SOTU.

Now, for those of you stuck on substance, one wonders whether an Al-Qaeda-Saddam connection might have developed after 9/11. The 9/11 report might not have attempted toinvestigate a subsequent connection, but it would surely be relevant by the time of the SOTU in 2003.

Unlikely? After we pushed them out of Afghanistan, Al-Qaeda went somewhere. George Tenet, Director of the CIA, explains it to Sen. Bob Graham, in a letter from Oct. 7, 2002. Now, maybe Tenet was wrong, but "lied"?
