"Oh, right, we did use Britian for rendition flights. I forget sometimes"

When I see articles like this one, C.I.A. Used a British Island to Transport Terrorism Suspects, I realize I'm not sure I can trust anything of import said by members of the government.
The American acknowledgment of the flights, each carrying a single detainee, contradicted previous assurances by the United States to Britain’s Labor government that no such flights had landed on British territory or passed through British airspace. Although the C.I.A. attributed its earlier denials to a “flawed records search,” the admission could add to the animosity the government here has aroused . . .
So, first we say we didn't do it when we know we really did do it and now we remember that we did and we say we did it?
