Dear Mr. Martin:

Your story about the flap over the President’s statement on Iraq’s nuclear program was headlined on the CBS News website, “Bush Knew Iraq Info Was False.” It was later changed to “Bush Knew Iraq Info Was Dubious.” Both headlines were false. Your own story was careful to note that the President’s statement about a British claim that Iraq was seeking uranium from Africa was “technically correct.” The British stand behind that claim. The administration says the statement should not have been made by the President not because it was false or inaccurate, but because the CIA couldn’t confirm it. The British say they didn’t provide this information to the CIA. So the real story is why the CIA could not be trusted with this information. Can you report why this is the case?
