This Just In! (24 hours after the fact...)


AP, 2/13/06, Austin Texas--Vice President Cheney blamed inaccurate intelligence information for his accidental shooting of his hunting partner yesterday. "The CIA radioed me credible information that there were several quail right behind me, so I made a pre-emptive strike. Quail will fly off at the slightest provocation so it's important to act quickly if you want to get them. A certain level of collateral damage must be accepted." Donald Rumsfeld also held a news briefing on the incident. "Yes, we would like to have better means of tracking quail, but you go hunting with the equipment that you have. With the bird flu breathing down our necks, it's important that we all be pro-active when it comes to killing birds."
