But then, you knew that. As reported by the New York Times today, a Senate committee report has “concluded that President Bush and his aides built the public case for war against Iraq by exaggerating available intelligence and by ignoring disagreements among spy agencies about Iraq’s weapons programs and Saddam Hussein’s links to Al Qaeda.”

Thus confirming our worst suspicions – that 4,000 American troops have been killed, nearly 40,000 wounded, and over 400,000 Iraqi civilians have been needlessly slaughtered – and the basis for these deaths and blood was nothing but a


Thanks, Mr. President. What a legacy you’ll leave for your successor.

    Who is lying?


    You should realize that the soldiers who volunteered to fight and win this war, do not appreciate your attitude.

    You’re breaking my heart. Blind faith in incompetent leadership is not patriotism.

    And speaking as a veteran, I am extremely offended at having been asked to fight for a cause that’s been since revealed to be a fraud.

    There were no WMDs in Iraq. You want an apology from me? Fine. I’m sorry Bush lied.

    So the above truth is meaningless to you? Why don’t you include in your rant, others who [may have] lied? You hated Bush before the war. Who is lying now?

    What “truth”? All you offered was sound bites. After 9/11 Bush & Co. so heavily demagogued the war plans that it became politically (ahem) risky for any of our elected representatives to oppose it. It’s a well known fact that the intelligence was padded and in many cases blatantly falsified in order to “sell the war”. Why don’t YOU report that in YOUR rants?

    And how do you know I “hated Bush before the war”? When have I ever said that?

    Please try and be a little less biased in your comments. I know it’s hard, but give it a whirl.

    Bush is still lying. He can’t help it – it’s habit by now.
