Dilbert on Circular Reasoning

With BizTalk 2004 it is possible to end up in 'execution loops', often this is referred to as circular reasoning. I was looking for some examples. Dilbert had the following illustration. Although it doesn't beat the example in the previous post.



Bush on Circular Reasoning

In the New York times [published June 18,2004]:

The New York Times > Washington > Bush and Cheney Talk Strongly of Qaeda Links With Hussein: "Mr. Bush, responding to a reporter's question about the report after a White House cabinet meeting yesterday morning, said: 'The reason I keep insisting that there was a relationship between Iraq and Saddam and Al Qaeda' is 'because there was a relationship between Iraq and Al Qaeda.' "

A great example of circular reasoning!
