Plagiarism in the State of the Union

Rep. Peter Hoekstra, Detroit News, 10/20/2003:
The group’s report uncovers dozens of weapons of mass destruction-related program activities and significant amounts of equipment that Iraq concealed from the United Nations.
Bush in State of the Union:
Already, the Kay Report identified dozens of weapons of mass destruction-related program activities and significant amounts of equipment that Iraq concealed from the United Nations.
I guess there’s some speculation that Bush’s team actually wrote the op/ed piece for Hoekstra, which is why the language is the same. Not that either of the statements are actually true, factually speaking.
