White House: Do as we say, not as we do Newsweek article - Newsweek has apologized and backtracked on their article saying that officers at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, desecrated the Quran. White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan has asked for a full retraction. "The report has had serious consequences. People have lost their lives. The image of the United States abroad has been damaged. I just find it puzzling." And yet, the White House has refused to comment on the Downing Street Memo, as well has led us into a war based on lies, where over 1,600 soldiers and over 100,000 Iraqis have lost their lives, our credibility and community abroad has been damaged, and an article that had its source change his story is what he finds appalling? And the fact that still to this day there's no investigation into ethics violations of Tom Delay, or of the President leading us to an illegal war, or Senators inciting violence on the judiciary, and it's a problem with a magazine article that has damaged our credibility? Wake up, Scott.

The Whitehouse, one must admit, has incredible skills at diverting attention and eluding issues. Playing the part of the virtuous with Newsweek, intimidating the press, probably hoping in the meanwhile that people will just forget about the memo.
