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

-SNIP
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.
-SNIP-

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

-SNIP-
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.
-SNIP-

I'm scratching my head in bewilderment.
