Al Gore Invented The Internet Did He?

"During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet”, Said Vice President Al Gore in an interview with Wolf Blitzer in March 1999.

This sentence, despite some ambiguity, implies that as a parliamentarian Vice President Al Gore encouraged the development of a network we are enjoying today. It does not imply, at all, that the Vice President took the patent of inventing this technology. Many people manipulated his words wrongly, claiming Vice President Al Gore a liar, and thus a conspiracy took birth.
