Threading the needle

Josh Marshall nicely dissects Condi's fine performance on 60 Minutes, noting her ability to chose words carefully, to fit "an unhelpful set of facts." I can't help wondering if this statement isn't yet another example of the same thing:

...the President doesn't talk to his staff in an intimidating way to ask them to produce information - that is false.

Is she telling us, in her own special way, that there is no need for the President to intimidate his staff, when he wants them to lie? Is she admitting, in a roundabout way, that they do so routinely & willingly? Or does she just want to remind us that intimidation, in this White House, only enters the picture when someone tells the truth?
