Bush lied alright - no doubt about it.
Billary allegedly said:
The Niger nuke thing always was a red herring intended to distract from the
real, provable lies.
Try these. A small, representative sample of the bullshit the president
uttered for months...AND a fresh *bonus* lie the prez told just a couple of
First - some context - way back in December 2002:
"The president of the United States and the secretary of defense would not
assert as plainly and bluntly as they have that Iraq has weapons of mass
destruction if it was not true, and if they did not have a solid basis for
December 6, 2002
....and now the lie:
"Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that
the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal
weapons ever devised."
George W. Bush
March 17, 2003
.......so Bush claims - on March 17th - to ALREADY have proof that leaves "no
doubt". Yeah? Where is it? Bush is a liar all right.....
Or how about the lie about why he went to war? This is a fresh one:
On July 14, 2003:
"The larger point is, and the fundamental question is, did Saddam
Hussein have a weapons program? And the answer is, absolutely. And we
gave him a chance to allow the inspectors in, and he wouldn't let them in."
On March 17, 2003:
"For their own safety, all foreign nationals -- including journalists
and inspectors -- should leave Iraq immediately."
Hey, if it walks like a lie, talks like a lie, smells like a lie...well,
the odds are it's a lie, right?
"Naturally, the common people don't want war;
neither in Russia nor in England nor in America,
nor for that matter in Germany.
That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders
of the country who determine the policy and
it is always a simple matter to drag the people
along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist
dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist
dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can
always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.
That is easy. All you have to do is tell them
they are being attacked and denounce the
pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing
the country to danger. It works the same way
in any country."
