Unless you were inside his head at the time--are you psychic?--you don't know what he thought.

That's true, of course. But we know a lot about what he knew, i.e. what information was available to him and presented to him. We also know that to overcome intelligence information that didn't confirm his administrations wishes, it concocted intelligence to support the case for war.

But all this is a tiresome digression about a thoroughly discussed policy debacle. The question in hand is whether Obama lied about whose idea sequestration was, initially. A better question is: what difference does it make?
