  •  And though it was literally true, it was wrong (3+ / 0-)
    It was literally true. The British government, some portion of it, did report that Iraq had sought uranium in Africa.

    However, it was deeply misleading since the CIA had said, (a) the British are wrong, and (b) it's clear that even if he did try that he would not succeed in acquiring yellowcake and (c) why would he bother, since they were sure he had plenty already?

    And the administration knew all those things and put the line in the speech anyway, for effect.

    The might as well have said, "An American newspaper has reported that Osama Bin Ladin is telemarketing American citizens to purchase aluminum siding," which is equally true. No need to add that the original source of that is The Onion. Kinda takes away from the punch of the speech, don't you think?

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
