Operation Ignore

Drudge is right to bring up this May 19, 2002 article in the WaPo which shows how long the press has been giving the administration cover for their lies. Yes, I know that the story was reported, but it was reported and ignored.

New accounts yesterday of the controversial Aug. 6 memo provided a shift in portrayals of the document, which has set off a political firestorm because it suggested that bin Laden's followers might be planning to hijack U.S. airliners.

In earlier comments this week, national security adviser Condoleezza Rice and other administration officials stressed that intelligence officials were focused primarily on threats to U.S. interests overseas. But sources made clear yesterday that the briefing presented to Bush focused on attacks within the United States, indicating that he and his aides were concerned about the risks.

Operation Ignore extended to the press, as well.
