U.S.: Oh, crap! Bush didn't lie!!!

So says this article, "Iraqi officer in Al Qaeda, papers show," in today's WaTimes.

There is much consternation amongst the liberal riff-raff and the unwashed hoi polloi this morning, not just across the fruited plain, but from sea to shining sea -- Atlantic to Pacific.
