How Many More Public Servants Are Out of Touch?

Sec. of State Condoleeza Rice said this morning on Fox News Sunday “there were ties between Iraq and al-Qaida.” The Senate Intelligence Committee report released Friday indicated no ties between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaida. A CIA assessment in October 2005 said much the same thing. Condi’s response? She does not remember seeing that particular report.

Only in the Bush administration can a lie continue to be repeated nearly a year after the light of day showed it to be false. Only in this cabal can public servants claim ignorance as a valid excuse. The CEO does it frequently.
