This Statement is False

Verizon: This statement may or may not be true, but we didn't do it

Update: Doesn't anyone else find this odd? Why are there over 1100 news stories that read "Verizon Says It Didn't Give Records to NSA?" Did anyone read the release?

Look at this doublespeak, as exemplified here from the Washington Post:
New York-based Verizon said yesterday that it would not confirm or deny any relationship with the NSA, but that "one of the most glaring and repeated falsehoods in the media reporting is the assertion that, in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, Verizon was approached by the NSA and entered into an arrangement to provide the NSA with data from its customers' domestic calls. This is false."
Again, their press release reads (my paraphrase):
We cannot say whether X is true or false. However, X is false.
