Politically Confused

The one thing I can't work out in all this phonehackingstuffgatething is why Cameron would feel a full apology would be necessary only if 'It turns out I have been lied to.'

If I pass on information to someone else in good faith, then discover it was wrong, I will apologise that I was misled. I would expect some slack from those to whom I apologise.

If my judgement is so flawed that I appoint a known liar (and I don't know this is true of Cameron but some say it is) to a position of authority and responsibility, then a guarded apology now would save it being a resignation matter later.

Wouldn't it?
