A Lying President (Bush) & His Lying Minions (2) ~ On the Further Politicization of Government Inquiry

I noted here a while back a report from the Center for Public Integrity documenting the massive campaign of lying and bullshit that BushCo engaged in while selling the invasion of Iraq. Now even the Pentagon has announced that Saddam Hussein had no links to al Queda. You can see stories here and here and, in the interest of being 'fair and balanced,' even here. In a stroke of public relations genius, the Pentagon has decided (surprise!) that rather than post the report on-line and hold the standard news conferences, they will make the report available only on request, via U.S. postal service. You can find a copy of the report on-line here. I guess that no one in the administration experiences embarassment.

Regardless of the situation in Iraq, I don't see how anyone could think that there weren't many more dictators who posed a far great threat to the United States and the world than Saddam.

But the Iraq war will "cost" trillions of dollars. That means a lot of people made a lot of money off this war.
