Sanchez Perjury Proof ? That depends on the meaning of "never"
Mainstream media once again caught with pants down as
citizen-journalist notes apparent perjury by Gen. Sanchez during testimony
before the US Congress concerning whether he authorized torture or not. The Globe and Mail
noticed the ACLU release of a FOIA-obtained memo
showing that Sanchez did in fact authorize torture, but the implication of perjury seems to have escaped MSM notice, to be pointed out by a
Metafilter's own citizen journalist Mark Kraft, who declares : "Sanchez is clearly guilty of perjury, and should face the wrath of Congress... and the Senate should determine the guilt of his boss, Donald Rumsfeld, while they're at it."
The case all hinges on the meaning of the word "never" which - rumor holds - is much more flexible in Sanchez' native "Never-never Land" where - as with the rumored numerous Eskimo terms for different kinds of snow - denizens of that realm have many different meanings for "never", some of which in fact mean "sometimes" or "occasionally" !
