Via The Corner:
The Democratic National Committee has just released a statement which appears to claim that the president is lying when he says the administration briefed members of Congress on the NSA spying program:
"With his credibility in tatters, President Bush may have fielded questions, but he failed to explain why he may have ignored both federal law and the Constitution in ordering the NSA to spy on Americans. This disturbing abuse of power has become a disturbing hallmark of the Bush administration over the past five years. The President now seems to be hiding behind a false claim that he briefed members of Congress.
In the spirit of the President's newfound candor, we call upon him to correct the record, explain why members of Congress were left in the dark and support an investigation into this secret spying program..."
"The President now seems to be hiding behind a false claim that he briefed members of Congress" is a very dangerous claim - they are insisting that the President was lying in his radio address Saturday, his Oval Office speech on Sunday, and in his press conference today.
That is a bold statement, it demands proof. Will the MSM investigate this radical claim, the way they analyze every word that comes out of Bush's mouth, trying to create discrepencies? Or will they allow this to sit out there, hoping it gains a false aura of truth, as part of their insane War against America?
Let's watch this, carefully...
