Lying Liars

The Post reports that North Korea sold uranium to Pakistan, who in turn sold it to Libya, but in an effort to put pressure on North Korea, the Bush administration told our allies in Asia that Pyongyang sold directly to Libya.
    The Bush administration's approach, intended to isolate North Korea, instead left allies increasingly doubtful as they began to learn that the briefings omitted essential details about the transaction, U.S. officials and foreign diplomats said in interviews. North Korea responded to public reports last month about the briefings by withdrawing from talks with its neighbors and the United States.
Apparently, in Bush's world, things are so upside down, that the friend of our enemy is in fact our friend.
