Parroting the news

So, it turns out that the Iraqi authorities had nearly every particular right, while the press officers from the American military now have to send out higher ranking officers to, ahem, correct the record.

I don't know that officials of my government were lying. They could have simply been mistaken. But I am very tired of being unable to rely on public statements, delivered with such certitude, that should be made with care instead of ideology.
