Hatch: I didn't Say What I SaidOrrin Hatch realized his brain is fried and tries to cover it up:
WASHINGTON - Sen. Orrin Hatch backpedaled Tuesday from a recent claim he made asserting that deposed Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was supporting al-Qaida, and that "Nobody with brains" would deny the connection.Considering that his original statement contradicts the findings of the 9-11 Commission and the Senate Intelligence Committee on which he sits, the excuse that he "misspoke" is pretty hard to swallow, especially in the context of his full remarks.
So he distorts facts and distorts the very distortion of facts he committed. There is simply no hope of getting straight talk out of these people.
