GAO: Bush is Lying

"GAO: Bush is Lying"

Karen DeYoung and Thomas Ricks in The Washington Post have a great piece about a draft GAO report that says the administration is full of it on progress in Iraq (though not quite in so many words). The report was leaked by officials who (correctly) fear that the administration will water it down or use the classification process to obscure key findings.

As usual with these things, the question is whether the press can not merely break the big story, but then incorporate this information into future reporting about administration claims.
