And You Shall Know Them By Their Misrepresentations

Condi Rice has a problem.

The U.S. is not preparing for war against Iran and Vice President Dick Cheney supports that policy, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says, taking a swipe at a U.N. official who says he is worried about “crazies” who want to start bombing.

“The president of the United States has made very clear what our policy is. That policy is supported by all the members of his Cabinet and by the vice president of the United States,” Rice said Friday.

“The president has made clear that we are on a diplomatic course,” she said in regard to U.S. opposition to Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

I can’t imagine why the world (and many Americans) don’t believe you. It’s not like we have had, in recent history, the planning and execution of a major war you claimed wasn’t being planned or anything.

Nope, this is a total mystery. A real head-scratcher.
