They lied to you. More proof. How much do you need?

Lacking Biolabs, Trailers Carried Case for War: Administration Pushed Notion of Banned Iraqi Weapons Despite Evidence to Contrary, By Joby Warrick, Washington Post Staff Writer,
Wednesday, April 12, 2006

On May 29, 2003, 50 days after the fall of Baghdad, President Bush proclaimed a fresh victory for his administration in Iraq: Two small trailers captured by U.S. and Kurdish troops had turned out to be long-sought mobile "biological laboratories." He declared, "We have found the weapons of mass destruction."

The claim, repeated by top administration officials for months afterward, was hailed at the time as a vindication of the decision to go to war. But even as Bush spoke, U.S. intelligence officials possessed powerful evidence that it was not true.

A secret fact-finding mission to Iraq -- not made public until now -- had already concluded that the trailers had nothing to do with biological weapons. Leaders of the Pentagon-sponsored mission transmitted their unanimous findings to Washington in a field report on May 27, 2003, two days before the president's statement.

They knew their claim was bogus and they put it on the shelf because they knew the only way to get you to do what they wanted was to keep the truth from you and then tell you whatever it took to convince you of the lie they wanted to believe.

With a track record like this, do you really think he's telling the truth when he says plans and preparations for an invasion of Iran are just wild speculation?

This administration takes the joke out of the old saying, "Don't believe anything until it is officially denied."

Please read these and be proud of your president:

So completely depressing. What's the definition of insanity? Repeating the same action over and over, expecting different results? It appears that those who continue to support Bush - his lies, bullying nature and reckless disregard for the office he is under strict oath to serve - do so under that umbrella of insanity - like the abusive spouse - he just keeps punching us in the face and some take it with a "thank you sir, may I have another?" - other's with an "oh, he really didn't mean it that way" and others who keep taking it - complaining (weak kneed democrats)about being victims, but will never do anything about it.

VOTE, people. VOTE.

You're not the first to make the battered spouse syndrome connection.

I just hope the intervention doesn't come in the form of a pre-emption by one of our global neighbors.

I don't see how anyone can blame Iran, North Korea, or any other nation for wanting nukes of their own. It seems like we just keep telling the world that might makes right. If I were them, I'd want a little of that kind of right myself.
