Looks like W, Rove and Co's Condi Rice is doctoring up the data. We have to ask, what's the good Dr. Rice (she has a Ph.D.) up to, and what is the difference between favorable and unfavorable facts? I suppose that, becuase they are pretty free with the whiteout on official documents in the W, Rove and Co, we will never know.
This is why when they say, "You have to trust us," they really have no credibility in that department.
Mr Waxman said: "There appears to be a pattern in the administration's approach to terrorism data: favourable facts are revealed while unfavourable facts are suppressed."
Ms Rice's spokesman, Richard Boucher, denied the change was politically inspired and said Ms Rice had decided the statistics would be better handled by the national counter-terrorism centre.
However, intelligence officials said there were no immediate plans to publish the figures.
Note, they didn't deny doctoring up the data. They were/are just blowing smoke up our skirts about why they did it.
