Liar Liar Pants on Fire

Now now, it appears what Bush said could be technically true. As the Horse notes, Bush said:

The "Mission Accomplished" sign, of course, was put up by the members of the USS Abraham Lincoln saying that their mission was accomplished. I know it was attributed somehow to some ingenious advance man from staff..."

I'm sure the sign was put up by the "members" (?) of the USS Lincoln. But, the Navy is now saying that the White House produced the sign.

BILL PRESS: Bush said...the crew of the ship put that sign up. Now we find out the White House has just confirmed, we just got this handed to us...Senior Navy officials now confirm the sign was in fact produced by the White House.
