Who's who, Guardian style

In anticipation of the end of the Plame investigation, and undoubtedly with high hopes that indictments against Bush officials will be forthcoming, The Guardian today gives us a who’s who of the Wilson/Plame affair.

Typically, it shades the facts, specifically with regard to Joe Wilson, the person who instigated the whole affair with his article in The New York Times suggesting that the Bush administration had lied about the Niger/uranium intelligence. Not surprisingly, The Guardian fails to inform its readers that virtually every substantive claim that Wilson made about the conclusions of his Niger trip, along with denials about the involvement of his wife in getting him sent in the first place, were subsequently found by a bipartisan Senate committee to be, in a word, false.

Another word might be "lies", something with which, if this guy is to be believed (and the case looks pretty compelling to me), The Guardian itself is intimately familiar.

I really don't understand why Bush's SOTU words are depicted as "Bush lies" i.e

The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa

The CIA provided Bush with these words which only report the actions of another government & do not claim that uranium was acquired by Saddam.
