The Games Continue


In a highly unusual move, key Republicans in Congress are seeking to declassify testimony that former terrorism adviser Richard Clarke gave in 2002 about the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Friday. Frist said the intent was to determine whether Clarke lied under oath - either in 2002 or this week - when he appeared before a bipartisan Sept. 11 commission and sharply criticized President Bush's handling of the war on terror.


Frist disclosed the effort to declassify Clarke's testimony in remarks on the Senate floor, then talked with reporter. He said he personally didn't know whether there were any discrepancies between Clarke's two appearances.

...stick to killing cats.

...story changed. That last paragraph is gone now. Lovely.

...the original paragraph is still here. Save a copy before it's gone...

... now apparently Frist is telling reporters what's in the classified documents that haven't been declassified.

...Frist himself has problems telling the truth.
