Al Gore NEVER said that he "INVENTED" the Internet.

He actually said, "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

Gore was the original drafter of the High Performance Computing and Communication Act of 1991, which provided significant funding for supercomputing centers, and this in turn led to upgrades of a major part of the already existing, early 1990s Internet backbone, the NSFNet, and development of NCSA Mosaic, the browser that popularized the World Wide Web.
