When John Bolton, Bush's choice for U.N. ambassador, was filling out a Senate questionnaire, he said he had NOT either testified before a grand jury, or been interviewed as part of an investigation, within the last five years.
Turns out (surprise) he lied! In fact, John Bolton was interviewed in 2003 by the State Department's Inspector General, as part of a joint investigation (with the CIA) into whether Iraq tried to acquire yellowcake uranium from Niger.
Noel Clay, State Department spokesperson, says Bolton didn't remember being interviewed, and will correct his information!
This has to be the understatement of the year, but I find it curious that John Bolton would not remember being interviewed in such a critical investigation.
