Reported Bush Lied 'Study' Not Revealed as Funded By George Soros

Well, the AP has done it again. They have given us leftist propaganda and painted it as news. This time they have published the results of a "study" that claims that "Bush lied" in the run up to the actions in Iraq and somehow the AP forgot to mention that the organization that released this study was funded by the extreme leftist George Soros who has spent billions funding the Democrat Party and many far left think tank and advocacy organizations. Yeah, THAT study is going to be legitimate!

This one may as well have been just a reprint of the press release of the Soros funded Center for Public Integrity, but the AP dressed it up as an actual story written by Douglass K. Daniel. Headlined "Study: False statements preceded war," the AP reveals how, "A study by two nonprofit journalism organizations found that President Bush and top administration officials issued hundreds of false statements about the national security threat from Iraq in the two years following the 2001 terrorist attacks."

"The study was posted Tuesday on the Web site of the Center for Public Integrity, which worked with the Fund for Independence in Journalism."

Why is it liberal organizations always give them selves false names? I mean you don't even have to get past their name to see the first lie they tell.

In my experience it is always the people who say "trust me i would never lie to you" who are the ones you have to suspect the most... the truly honest people usually never think they have to tell you that

I would think that it would be much easier for Cheney and Bush to pull that off if neither of them was in the public limelight. Why would either of them have struggled to get into the WH just to do something they could have done more easily, successfully and more clandestinely out of public notice? Liberals are as dumb as dirt and REALLY out of their minds!

Doesn't matter what the AP released. Anyone with a minimum of intelligence and any memory whatsoever of events from the 80s/90s KNOWs that Saddam has WMD. He used them.

Apparently, we have an awful lot of people in the U.S. who are incredibily stupid and have lost a big chunk of their memory.

there is a broad belief of similar ideas out there due to the relentless campaign of the left to discredit these two good men. For that the left is disgraceful...unfortunately, neither Bush nor Cheney have done themselves any favors the past couple years. They have been nearly invisible and have not defended themselves.

“CLINTON: Good evening.

Earlier today, I ordered America’s armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.

The hard fact is that so long as Saddam remains in power, he threatens the well-being of his people, the peace of his region, the security of the world.

The best way to end that threat once and for all is with a new Iraqi government — a government ready to live in peace with its neighbors, a government that respects the rights of its people.”

Sticking in the word “nonprofit” is supposed to make people think they are objective and honest. It looks like they took every statement of Bush’s they disagreed with and counted it as a lie. Even if some statements by the administration were mistaken, they weren’t “lies” unless the speaker knew they were inaccurate at the time.

Clinton: Iraq has abused its final chance
American president defends timing and need for strikes

WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, December 16) — President Bill Clinton Wednesday defended his decision to order airstrikes against Iraq, saying Saddam Hussein had failed his “one last chance” to cooperate with United Nations resolutions. “So we’ve had to act and act now.”

"A study by two nonprofit journalism organizations ..."

That was the first thing I picked up on. They may be nonprofit but they certianly are not nonpartisan which is what the authors want the reader to assume.

Yup, I'd say about 40%. They're called Democrats...

Did you mean "Now" instead of "Not" maybe?

No, he means that AP and the other propaganda outlets from the Ministry of Truth and Doublespeak chose NOT to disclose that important little fact in their report.

I didn’t know how to respond. I couldn’t believe that anyone could be so gullible. These folks don’t ask for any facts or proof, they just repeat any absurd story that someone tells them.

Try living in Maine.

Absurd stories and theories about evil conservatives are passed around like cocktail peanuts and just as unhesitatingly consumed.

If I remember right, within minutes it was shown that the "two nonprofit journalist organizations" were Soros fronts...

It got traction only among the MSM (which doesn't know better) and the other usual suspects.
