No Recess Appointment for Bolton

-- by Gary Boatwright

From Corrente:

The State Department reversed itself on Thursday night and acknowledged that President Bush's U.N. ambassador nominee gave Congress inaccurate information about an investigation he was involved in.

The acknowledgment came after the State Department had earlier insisted nominee John Bolton's "answer was truthful" when he said he had not been questioned or provided information to jury or government investigations in the past five years.

Why wasn't Bolton's answer truthful? Bolton forgot about being interviewed by the State Department inspector general. Ooops! Is that what they used to call perjury?
