Countless new ways to lie

Jun 23, 2003

Pentagon spokesperson Victoria Clarke retired on June 20. She managed press relations for Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld after 9/11, during the war in Afghanistan and during the invasion of Iraq.

Rumsfeld praised her service by saying that "she has developed countless new methods to tell the story."

Which means, in Pentagon-speak, countless new ways to avoid the truth.
