White House : Please take your own advice

“The White House’s response of “outrage” to the recent Newsweek story is truly a new milestone in hypocrisy for the Bush administration. Just look at their official response yesterday:

“It’s puzzling that while Newsweek now acknowledges that they got the facts wrong, they refused to retract the story,” White House spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters. “I think there’s a certain journalistic standard that should be met and in this instance it was not…The report has had serious consequences. People have lost their lives. The image of the United States abroad has been damaged.”

The irony of this White House “outrage” at inaccuracies in light of all the lies about Iraq the Bush administration has fed America is really incredible. Here’s what the Democrats should say in response:

“It’s puzzling that while the White House now acknowledged that they haven’t found WMD or a link between Al Queda and Iraq, they have refused to retract their claims. I think there’s a certain standard of governing that should be met and in this instance has not. The claims the administration used to send this nation to war has had serious consequences. People have lost their lives. The image of the United States abroad has been damaged.”
