  • 1. No one in the Bush administration ever said this. It never happened. I know of no such claim by the UK, either.

    2. There still is evidence of Iraq working with al Qaeda. Call it unproven if you will, but to say it is a lie is to discredit evidence that has not been discredited.

    3. Technically, this was never said in the State of the Union. Think on. It was never said in the SotU that Iraq was seeking, only that British intelligence believed that it was. And again, see #2 about lie vs. unproven.

      Pudge, there's a bug in slash, here. The comment's too long to view on the journal entry page, and even when you click "Read the rest of this comment," it is truncated. It ends with " 19. This is a gross distortion of the facts. All along the U.S. said they would probably use Iraqi oil money to help fund rebuilding of Iraq, and that the mo." However, if you click "reply to this," then you get to see the end of the message.

      I noticed the post appeared to be truncated yesterday, and then ran across the same thing in a post I just made on slashdot []. If the post is going to be truncated when displayed (presumably to avoid annoying browser tricks), shouldn't displaying the comment and replying the comment truncate them to the same length?

      Or is it that you assume someone taking the time to reply would want to see the entire comment, but other people might be scanning past it and not want to see it all? If that's the case, I'd think the "read the rest of this comment" link would still show everything. Perhaps it could be enhanced to show the length of the comment before you click.

      • It's my fault, my bug. I'll fix it ASAP.
        • Cool; thanks. The more I wrote about it, the less I was sure it was a bug, actually. ;)

          In case noone ever tells you, I love slashcode and wish every site on the internet worked that way. Keep up the good work.
