I've re-hosted the original article by Karen DeYoung and Ellen Nakashima of the Washington Post.
I can't say i'm surprised The Washington Post completely misinterpreted a government official's speech, but the conclusions these writers jumped to, and i fell for, certainly carry more brevity than the conclusions found in your everyday newspaper article.
This is why i usually prefer CSPAN. But i will certainly look a bit more into detail about each article i find interesting before i post it here.
Sorry about that, folks.
