Our ever-changing stories

Tom Raum of The Mighty But Slow Moving AP writes:

The White House has teamed with GOP congressional leaders in an aggressive damage-control campaign to counter embarrassing questions about prewar intelligence and lapses by President Bush's national security team.

But the effort is being hampered by an ever-changing White House story [heh heh!—Ed.] -- from first blaming the CIA and then the British to new revelations by Deputy National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley that contradict earlier statements by his boss, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice.

Not sure I agree with The Big Dog about dropping the issue, though. Some Democrats can keep after Bush on this issue, others can try to tear open new ones.

"It takes a village to stomp a weasel" (or something like that) as someone very close to our last elected President wrote. So have at it, say I.
