Do you or anyone in your Administration dispute the accuracy of the leaked document?I've searched the White House's press briefings and found no references at all to the memo (using British and Blair as search terms in separate searches). The briefings include not only hacks' regular sessions with Scott McClellan, but also--since the memo's publication in the Times of London--briefings and a "gaggle" with Condoleezza Rice and her former deputy at the NSC, now National Security Advisor himself, Stephen Hadley.
