What is the Truth?

From Holden:

Check this out as Scottie replies to a question about Dick Cheney’s lobbying on behalf of a CIA exemption to McCain’s anti-torture bill today:

Q Did you ask for an exemption on torture? That’s a simple question, yes or no.

MR. McCLELLAN: No. And we have not. That’s what I told you at the beginning.

That’s an unambiguous no. So was it The Post’s Smith and White who lied, or was it various Republican Senators?

The Times’ Schmitt?

How about AP’s Espo and Sidoti?
