Cracks in the wall
Amidst evasive statements, the White House is backtracking on their blusterings about Iraq and uranium.
“US National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice has defended a controversial claim that Iraq was seeking uranium from Africa, saying it was substantiated by several sources.
Nonetheless, she echoed President Bush’s spokesman in saying that the allegation should not have been included in the president’s State of the Union address in January.”
If this was a face-down, one would have to say the White House blinked.
