I can almost see Karl Rove sitting at his desk, "Don't issue the correction, not yet.... not yet.... Now."
(And if you doubt the political play on this story, answer this question: How do specific details of a classified meeting between the war's top commander and the president get leaked without an okay? Are we going to see prosecutions on this leak?)
Update: AP changed the article. Now it includes this quote. "Generally Casey proposes lots of things and actually laid out more than one option. And everybody's fastening on one," Snow said. "Certainly that's under consideration, but I would warn against saying this is what he's saying, this is what he wants."
But that one option just happens to be the one that was leaked.
