But he's saying they only committed a little bit of massive fraud.

After opposition candidates in Iran claimed that more than the number of eligible voters cast ballots in Iran's disupted election in as many as 170 cities, an official from Iran's Guardian Council, the organization charged with certifying the election returns, took umbrage.

“Statistics provided by the candidates, who claim more than 100 percent of those eligible have cast their ballot in 80 to 170 cities are not accurate — the incident has happened in only 50 cities,” Abbas Ali Kadkhodaei, a spokesman for the Guardian council said.

OK, so their strongest defense is that they didn't commit quite as much fraud as they have been accused of.

I guess you could also say that Bush lied just a little about the WMD?

Yeah, just a little bit anyway. Like everything he said.
