Again, CNN fails the most basic rules of responsible sourcing:
Unbelievable bullshit! Anonymous sources should only be used carefully to help the reader understand the story, not because they give a quote that fits your narrative. This is letting the White House put its spin into print without having to take responsibility for it.
In response to McClellan's suggestion in the "Today" interview that the White House manipulated intelligence in the run-up to the war, a senior administration official said, "Scott McClellan's assertions about the administration's decision to go into Iraq are just flat-out wrong and not supported by the facts."
The official was not willing to be identified because he was not authorized to speak about the book.
This is what got us into Iraq! CNN hasn't learned anything from Scott McClellan's book, which is only the latest lesson in a series of thousands.
