"We're a day late in getting responses to the story," Rove told a staff meeting, according to Libby's notes. "Get the full story out," Cheney told aides, according to Libby's grand jury testimony.
And by 'full story' he meant counteract the lies that Joey was out spreading to the media.
One was that he had been sent to Niger by Cheney, when in fact it was nepotism that got him the gig. Why did he lie?
Second, the report he turned in to the govt varied quite a bit from the fairy tale he told the NYT. The Commission determined that Wilson's yellowcake story didn't hold water and they stood by the original intelligence assessment.
So, an angry Cheney asks, "Why is the media giving Joe a free pass and helping to spread his distortions?"
"Get the FULL story out."
Now, we wouldn't want that, would we? When republicans fight back, they are labeled an 'attack machine' by the libtardos.
