Cheney did something unreportable?

Ok, now I'm really curious!

From today’s pool report from Vice President Cheney’s trip to Japan: “This was largely a repeat of the speech delivered the day before in Tokyo. However, the vice president made something clear this day that had been unanswered the day before — when he had departed from a prepared text in Tokyo that had read Americans “do not” accept a policy of retreat and instead said that Americans “will not” accept a policy of retreat. Your pool’s queries about the meaning of this departure in tenses went unanswered last night in what started as a background briefing with an administration official and lapsed into something else that is, well, unreportable.”

So it is unreportable...why?

Oh no, the media isn't complicit with the administration, not at all. Guess we don't want our lovely junkets trailing the VP around to be endangered, do we?

My curiosity is killing me! What did he do, have a tantrum?

The unreportable story is why he changed tenses, from the American people "do not" accept retreat, as written, to the American people "will not" do so, as he apparently spoke the words.

Because, presumably, something classified is planned to be "made known" at some future time.

In other words, Cheney just leaked and then told the media not to report it.
