This Quibble is a Lie

When a decision is pending to send America's young men and women to die in combat a quibble is as bad as a lie. We now know Dick Cheney lied in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq.

Cheney at least quibbled when claiming to Tim Russert in September 2003 that he did not know Joe Wilson. He further said he did not know who sent Joe Wilson to Niger. Which, according to yesterday's report that Cheney ID'd Wilson wife as CIA and that she was involved in sending him on the trip. The later seems more like an outright lie by any definition.

According to the Washington Post, the white house is quibbling hard.
McClellan said Cheney has always been honest with the American people. He dismissed as "ridiculous" a question about whether Bush stood by Cheney's account of his role in the matter. In an interview in September 2003, Cheney told NBC's Tim Russert he did not know Wilson or who sent him to Africa. Officials said Cheney was careful to distance himself from Wilson in the interview without telling a lie about what he knew about the diplomat and his wife.
I'm sorry but, here in the Bible Belt of East Tennessee, if you have to work that hard to claim the truth, you're lying!

I realize most of the folks we are talking about never served in the military much less attended West Point. They do know a lot of people who went to the military academy though, and I'm just guessing that any of them could explain to Mr. Cheney, et al, how an honorable person defines a quibble.

I'd bet the explanation would include the word lie.
