The Scandal Widens

The thing I don't understand about this whole "State of the Union" hullabaloo is why anyone believed that Saddam needed to go to Niger in the first place. I mean, Christ, thirty seconds of Googling and he could have learned to make the stuff himself.

And for that matter, why does everyone think George Tenet's statement that "those 16 words should never have been included in the text written for the president" was about Iraq? When I heard him say that, I just assumed he was referring to this passage:

This country has many challenges. We will not deny, we will not ignore, we will not pass along our problems to other Congresses, to other presidents, and other generations. (Applause.) We will confront them with focus and clarity and courage. (Applause.) And another thing: Clay Aiken is, like, totally going to win American Idol, mark my words. (Wild applause.)
