  • "Notice That At No Time Will My Fingers Leave My Hand!" ( The 'Bush Lied' Lie )

    Two years after the invasion of Iraq, the effort to use terrorism to bring down the White House continues unabated. It isn't that al-Qaeda has been all that effective against the American homeland, or even against US forces in Iraq or Afghanistan. The number of US troops stationed in Iraq is roughly the equivalent to the population of a mid-sized American city, say, Buffalo, New York. A quick glance at the Buffalo News' obituary column provides the math that says more Americans died in Buffalo, New York since the invasion of Iraq than have actually died IN Iraq. A comparison...

    Unless you've been hiding under your bed, you know that Democrats have stepped up their campaign to convince the American people that over two thousand young men and women of the American armed forces died in Iraq for one reason and for one reason only, Bush lied. The problem with this "Bush lied" charge is that Democrats know full well that it simply is not true. The issue for Democrats though is not whether or not the charge is true, but whether or not they can convince the American people that it is true. For politicians ... and I'm referring...

    A funny thing has happened to the accusation that President Bush "lied" or "misled" Americans about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Bob Woodward's new book, "Plan of Attack," blows the charge away, not that you've read about that in many other places. Instead, we've all heard mostly about the book's report that Colin Powell wasn't keen on going to war. This we already knew. The real news is what Mr. Woodward tells us about the President's state of mind concerning Iraq's weapons when he ordered American troops into battle: His Director of Central Intelligence had assured him that the...

    "We will, in fact, be greeted as liberators." -- Vice President Dick Cheney, March 16, 2003 As a candidate, President Bush pledged to restore integrity to the White House. Against the backdrop of President Clinton's repeated lies about a sordid adulterous affair, Bush ran on his claims to be a man of strong character -- a politician of plain speaking and straight talk. He wouldn't lie to us. Yet, this administration has produced more dissembling and distortion, more fabrications and pseudo-facts than any White House in recent memory -- Richard Nixon's included. The Bushites lie brazenly and repeatedly, refusing to...

Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) yesterday took President George W. Bush to task for what he called misleading the American public on everything from Medicare to education.

So, when John Kerry says he supports the Kyoto Treaty even though he voted for a bill that declared the United States would never ever ratify it, that doesn't mean he's a "liar," it just means that ... well, to be honest, I haven't a clue what it means.

    Bill Clinton is a compulsive liar. He lied about big things and small. He got caught at it, repeatedly. Just ask his wife. Democrats became so testy and defensive about the lies that brought Clinton down that they've since become obsessed with the very term. So they've tried to pin the "L" word on Bush in a transparent attempt to turn the tables.Disagreements, different interpretations, misunderstandings, even honest mistakes are now called "lies," even if they're not willful. Call it indiscriminate verbal inflation. Left-wing scribblers like Joe Conason, David Corn and Al Franken all use the word in the titles...

    About this video Some people would like you to think President Bush lied when he talked about Saddam Hussein's weapons. The funny thing is, many of the president's current critics are politicians who made strikingly similar claims about Iraq in the not-too-distant past. When Bill Clinton was in office, his fellow Democrats had much to say about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. But if you listen to them now, you might conclude that the entire party suffers from collective amnesia. Democrats used to talk tough about Iraq. They did when one of their own was in the White House. And...

    Kerry: Bush Lied About Water on Mars (2004-03-03) -- John Forbes Kerry, the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee, today said President George Bush lied about the presence of water on Mars. The charge comes a day after NASA announced that its Mars rovers had found evidence that there may have been water on Mars in the past. "Evidence of previous water is not the same as the presence of actual water now," said Mr. Kerry. "No one doubts that Mars once had a 'water program', if you will. But Mr. Bush spent $800 million on his unilateral Martian adventure. That money...

    The Blame Game by David Corn David Kay, the recently resigned chief WMD hunter who has declared that it is unlikely Iraq had any weapons of mass destruction in the years before the war, uttered these words while testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee on January 28. They were meant to explain the tremendous gap between the prewar claims that Iraq was loaded with weapons of mass destruction and the reality that Kay says he found: no actual weapons and "no indication of a production process that would have produced [WMD] stockpiles." Embarrassed by Kay's disclosures, defenders of the invasion...

    <p>In the increasingly out-of-body experience that has become politics and the news about politics in America, it is getting harder than ever to separate fact from fiction. This matters, because the facts could kill us. In the past week, stories about what President Bush knew about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction (WMD) have been appearing almost literally alongside stories of the efforts by many nations to produce or acquire a nuclear bomb. Many Americans now believe, on the basis of repetition unto brainwashing, that President Bush more or less made up his reasons for going to war in Iraq, that his assertions about the Iraqi threat were fiction. This is why John Edwards, a U.S. senator, is willing to say the president's "integrity" as commander-in-chief is a legitimate election issue. Simultaneously, A.Q. Khan, the "Father" of Pakistan's A-bomb, has become the world's most famous Asian. Khan stole the information needed to build a nuclear bomb for Pakistan. He entered the global marketplace, the "community of nations," and bought the highly engineered materials needed to manufacture the bomb: "They literally begged us to buy their equipment." He then went into business, until recently, selling atomic-bomb expertise to other nations. No one believes Khan is making any of this up. The stories the past fortnight about Khan have revealed that the nations identified as having participated between about 1970 and a moment ago in the global Get-A-Bomb market include acquirers such as Pakistan, Iran, Libya and North Korea and a long list of witting or unwitting enablers, such as Russia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates (Dubai), South Korea, the U.S., Britain, the Netherlands and Japan. We have learned, for instance, that on a nondescript street in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, sits Scomi Precision Engineering, a mere dot in the high-tech ocean that happens to be capable of producing parts usable in centrifuges, which separate the heavier nuclear U-238 isotope from the lighter, bomb-required U-235 isotope. In August, crates of Scomi parts were seized enroute to Libya.</p>

    ‘Bush Lie and Who Die?’ Milititary families react to the controversy over WMD intelligence WEB EXCLUSIVE By Martha Brant Newsweek Feb. 13 - Fernando Suarez del Solar has become something of a cause celebre in the antiwar movement. Although the Mexico native’s English is spotty, he is still eloquent when he speaks of his son’s death and the fact that no weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq. “Mr. Bush lie and who die?” Suarez asked this week. “My son.” Suarez’s 20-year-old son, Jesus, had desperately wanted to be a Marine. So the family moved across the border...

"If you start calling him a liar then what he has to do is go to that microphone and say, 'It breaks my heart. I made a mistake, there's no question about it. I did not lie, and I want you to believe me, and I'm your president,"' Cuomo said Tuesday. "I wouldn't risk it." According to Cuomo, candidates who supported the war should tell the public:...

Yet Kay's comments fail to sustain the charges Bush's opponents make against him. Did he manipulate the intelligence? No. U.S. intelligence concluded that Iraq has had WMD since the 1990s, when Bush was governor of Texas. The major foreign intelligence services all agreed. Did Bush lie about it? No. He reported accurately what the...

    Weapons of Mass Hysteria If anything, the war was about 100,000 corpses too late. The United States has lost less than 350 American dead in actual combat in Iraq, deposed the worst tyrant on the planet, and offered the first real hope of a humane government in the recent history of the Middle East — and is being roundly condemned rather than praised for one of the most remarkable occurrences of our age. Yet a careful postbellum anatomy of the recent WMD controversy makes the original case for the war stronger rather weaker 1. A Weapon of Mass Destruction. There...

    “Bush lied about the Weapons of Mass Destruction.” It is the mantra of most of the democrat candidates, all of their professional spinmeisters, and the constant harangue of the liberal media. To determine if Bush did, in fact lie, we must accomplish two goals. First, we must determine what is meant by the word ‘lie.’ Then, we must consider the facts of the situation and see if President Bush did actually lie, as the word is generally understood. So then, what is a lie? Is it merely an untruth? Is it just a false statement? No, it is more complicated...

With all the gravitas he could muster, he recycled his standard complaint: that the Iraq war was never really about WMDs or the war on terror. It was a "political product" from "Day 1" of the president's administration. This echoes Kennedy's earlier diatribes, like last fall when he said, "Before the war, week after week after week after week, we were told lie after lie after lie after lie."
