Perjurer as US Ambassador to UN

Not sufficient in trying to appoint a man who thinks that the UN is irrelevant, Bush is pushing to appoint someone everyone in the world knows perjured himself (shortly said: "A Liar") as the US Ambaassador to the UN.

Wired news today reported that the US State Department confirmed that John Bolton, when giving sworn testimony to Congress gave innacurate information, which is a nice way of saying that he perjured himself.

I wonder where is that upstanding Senator Norm Coleman, Republican Chairman of the Senate Committee investigatiing the UN Oil For Food program, who said immediately after the George Galloway testimony to his Senate Committee, that if Galloway had perjured himself, the Senate would take action.

Senator Coleman had said he did not find George Galloway to be a "credible witness"

Or, as reported in The London Times:

Afterwards Mr Coleman described Mr Galloway’s credibility as very suspect and spoke of consequences if he was found to have lied under oath.

Is this the same Senator Norm Coleman who was shamed in front of the world by George Galloway, that he even removed Galloway's testimony from the official Senate website!!!

Is this brave Senator Norm Coleman, who has ambitions to be "President of the US" available for comment?

State Dept admits Bolton gave inaccurate answers

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The State Department reversed itself on Thursday night and acknowledged that President Bush's U.N. Ambassador nominee gave Congress inaccurate information about an investigation he was involved in.

The acknowledgment came after the State Department had earlier insisted nominee John Bolton's "answer was truthful" when he said he had not been questioned or provided information to jury or government investigations in the past five years.

"When Mr. Bolton completed his form during the Senate confirmation process he did not recall being interviewed by the State Department inspector general. Therefore his form as submitted was inaccurate in this regard and he will correct the form," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.

In a letter to Bush, California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer said Bolton's admission was "too little, too late" and urged Bush to withdraw the nomination.

"A recess appointment of a man who did not tell the truth to the (Senate Foreign Relations) committee and only admitted the truth when he was caught would send a horrible message," Boxer wrote.

"It seems unusual that Mr. Bolton would not remember his involvement in such a serious matter. In my mind, this raises more questions that need to be answered. I hope President Bush will not make the mistake of recess appointing Mr. Bolton," Biden said in response to the admission that Bolton's information was inaccurate.

So we know that another confirmed liar is being asked to serve this Bush malAdministration, so everything he says in the UN can be taken with a pinch of salt!!
