Clooney Upset By Blog Comments

LATEST: GEORGE CLOONEY is fuming about comments attributed to him that appeared on US socialite/politician ARIANNA HUFFINGTON's blog. Clooney agreed to let Huffington use his thoughts and criticisms about America's Democratic party for her HUFFINGTON POST site, but had no idea his comments would be misrepresented. The angry actor says, "What she (Huffington) most certainly did not get my permission to do is to combine only my answers in a blog. "That misleads the reader into thinking that I wrote this piece. These are not my writings. They are answers to questions and there is a huge difference... I stand by my statements but I did not write this blog." In the blog, Clooney says, "The fear of (being) criticised can be paralysing. Just look at the way so many Democrats caved in the run up to the (Iraq) war. "In 2003, a lot of us were saying, 'Where is the link between SADDAM (HUSSEIN) and (OSAMA) BIN LADEN? What does Iraq have to do with 9/11?' "We have to agree that it's not unpatriotic to hold our leaders accountable and to speak out."
