Words Matter

WORDS MATTER….Chris Wallace talks to Doug Feith this morning about the intelligence his office produced while he was at the Pentagon. Here’s Feith:

Nobody in my office ever said there was an operational relationship between Iraq and Al Qaeda. It’s just not correct. I mean, words matter.

Yes, words do matter:

Osama bin laden and Saddam Hussein had an operational relationship from the early 1990s to 2003 that involved training in explosives and weapons of mass destruction, logistical support for terrorist attacks, al Qaeda training camps and safe haven in Iraq, and Iraqi financial support for al Qaeda — perhaps even for Mohamed Atta — according to a top secret U.S. government memorandum obtained by The Weekly Standard.

Anybody want to guess whose office this “top secret memorandum” came from? Anybody? No fair clicking the link first!
