12. What The Hell Happened To The AP?
This is the second time today they have issued a story that is a direct contradiction of other reporting.

First this. First Example

And now this? France, Germany to Help Relieve Iraq Debt

President Bush's special envoy on Iraq won agreement Tuesday from Germany and France, two of the most ardent opponents of the American-led war, to ease Baghdad's huge debt burden.

Of course you would have to read down a little farther in the story to get at the heart of the matter.

Details of how much debt would be restructured and canceled were left for further negotiations.

Iraq owes $40 billion to the United States, France, Germany, Japan, Russia and others in the 19-nation Paris Club. Other countries and private creditors are owed at least $80 billion in addition.

I'm scratching my head in bewilderment.
