The Scott McClellan Flap

Scot McClellan, former White House press secretary, will release a new book in June in which he alleges that the White House "manipulated intelligence to justify the war in Iran" (May 30, 2008, NY Times). While current and former administration officials deny this and other allegations, the White House itself remains largely silent. At a "press gaggle on May 28" current press secretary Dana Perino declared that the White House would not prepare a line-by-line refutation of Mr. McClellan's book and that it wasn't in the business of "fact-checking" a memoir.
