WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Colin Powell said Sunday that a State Department report claiming a global decline in terrorist incidents last year was a "big mistake," but he said there was no intent to "cook the books" for political purposes.OK, so, they "can't get away with that now" (Powell's words, not mine). Implication: they could (or did) get away with cooking the books before.
"It's not a political judgment that said, 'Let's see if we can cook the books.' We can't get away with that now. Nobody was out to cook the books. Errors crept in."
These guys are either the biggest group of bad liars every to occupy the White House, or they're incompetent to the extreme. Remember the jobs report claiming 2.6 million jobs would be created this year? The one that was almost immediately withdrawn?
Either way, America isn't being properly governed, and they need to go.
