Pentagon Spokesman is Lying

PLEASE CORRECT MIKLASZEWSKI --- ABOUT ASHCROFT
After the CBS news anchor's interview, NBC Pentagon correspondent Jim Miklaszewski called Imus to correct the record, explaining that Ashcroft's decision not to fly commercial aircraft last summer was prompted by threats against his life - and had no connection whatsoever to pre-Sept. 11 intelligence information.
Here is the link to original CBS article which states about Ashcroft not flying commercial:
"A senior official at the CIA said he was unaware of specific threats against any Cabinet member, and Ashcroft himself, in a speech in California, seemed unsure of the nature of the threat."
No specific threats to Ashcroft or cabinet members is opposite of recent statement that Ashcroft received personal threats.
