09/05/2005: Why is the bAdministration lying to us yet again....
At Talking Points Memo, Josh Marshall points out that both the Washington Post and Newsweek, citing an unnamed "senior Bush official", had reported that Louisiana Gov. Blanco had not, as of Saturday, September 3, 2005, declared a state of emergency in Louisiana, and that this failure had held up Federal intervention in the area.
The problem being, as Larry Johnson noted in his posts that I note below, Gov. Blanco declared a state of emergency on August 26. That can be verified on the official State of Louisiana website (.pdf file). (For that matter, Johnson noted that President Bush himself declared a state of emergency on August 28.)
So who's passing lies to the media? My guess is Karl "soon to be indicted, I hope" Rove.
