A Thousand Pointed Lies

Well, it's only NINE HUNDRED THIRTY FIVE, but that's CEFGW**. Bill Press, on AAR, this morning, interviewed Charles Lewis. Lewis won't say the word "LIES," but the implications are irrebuttable: Each and every one of the "top seven" was and is a lying sack of shit, "a reeking, leaking, dripping, oozing lying sack of shit!"
False Pretenses
Following 9/11, President Bush and seven top officials of his administration waged a carefully orchestrated campaign of misinformation about the threat posed by Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

By Charles Lewis and Mark Reading-Smith

President George W. Bush and seven of his administration's top officials, including Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, made at least 935 false statements in the two years following September 11, 2001, about the national security threat posed by Saddam Hussein's Iraq. Nearly five years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, an exhaustive examination of the record shows that the statements were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses.
"Decidedly false pretenses." Clinton got impeached for ONE lie, about a consentual blow-job. The Busheviks peddle nearly 1,000 lies, drag the country into a senseless, illegal, deadly, ruinous, unwinnable, half-TRILLION-Dollar invasion and occupation, and all they get is richer.
There is something decidedly WRONG with this picture.
Or mebbe it's just me.

It takes a Ken Starr to go from an investigation into accusations of financial malfeasance, that are proved untru,e to purely private sex games and not be too embarrassed to admit you failed. I'm very glad to have an impeachment investigation started by the House and proceed to real facts, real evidence, and real prosecution.
