Today's Special Guest in the Lie Du'Jour is Condi Rice.

Recently, regarding the nomination of John Bolton to the United Nations, Rice said that Bolton had a "track record of effective multilateralism."

Oops

Bolton is on record as saying "If the UN secretariat building in New York lost 10 stories, it wouldn't make a bit of difference."

He also said "There is no United Nations. There is an international community that occasionally can be led by the only real power left in the world, and that is the United States, when it suits our interest, and when we can get others to go along."

Even members of Bolton's own party have concerns. Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska said = "We need alliances, we need friends. To go up there and kick the U.N. around doesn't get the job done."

So much for having a record of effective multilateralism.

Maybe this is more of a stupid thing for Rice to say, as opposed to a lie. Either way, it deserves to be posted.

Here is an Interesting Tidbit.

We have all heard about the Italian Journalist who was shot at and the Italian agent who died shielding her from the bullets.

We have also heard that the United States knew nothing about the Italian Agent or the plan to free the Italian Journalist.

Well, I am hearing that the Italian Agent who died was actually operating from a U.S. Base.

Today's Lie comes to us courtesy of Kevin Drum's Political Animal over at Washington Monthly.

Chris Mooney recently pointed out that:
"The administration claims that the evidence for the effectiveness of needle exchange is shaky. An official who requested anonymity directed us to a number of researchers who have allegedly cast doubt on the pro-exchange consensus."

When Mooney made some phone calls to three of those researchers, they all claimed that their findings disagree with the Bush administration's current policy regarding the effectiveness of needle exchange, which is the opposite of what this anonymous high ranking official told us.

So, to sum it up, Bush Administration says the evidence regarding the effectiveness of needle exchange is shaky. Bush administration cites certain researchers to justify the decision. When contacted, those researchers say their studies do in fact give results that support needle exchange programs.

Sounds like a lie to me.
