Once again the WH has been caught with it's hand in the cookie jar.
But the administration's line now is "Well, okay, yes, he knew about it ... but he didn't KNOW about it."
The Dems seem to have dredged up copies of Edwin Newman's books about political doublespeak from the post-Watergate inquiries, and they're using them as their playbook.
Remember: How do you know when a politician is lying? His lips are moving.
