Run Up to Iraq War: A Searchable Database of Lies and the Lying Liars Who Told Them

Saw this in the Boston Globe’s site this morning; its’ an AP story:

WASHINGTON—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 concluded 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.”

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

    I find it ironic, and very funny…I know what you’re thinking “Ironic???”, usually I use this word out of it’s meaning in real life…but it is suitable. Hillary Clinton say’s she’s for the war, later she changes her mind, then she says she’s for the war, then she changes her mind…Why do i mention this? It is infact related…Liberals lie openly, entire camaings are nothing BUT lies…i would say “For instance…”…errr so many to choose from….Of course, George W Bush sticks with what he says, when he fucks you over you know how…If something…no. I change my mind, not like you’ve even read this far…as soon as you read what i thought of Hillary Clinton you probably assumed the worst of me, things you wouldn’t know such as sexual orientation, my age, other things that are completly unavailable to your knowledges…pffft, might even get this post removed and banned…If you read this far without just going “DUM FACE” and stopped, i’m not Mega Republican or anything…seems to be more of a matter of Conservative or Liberal if you’re not poop, and if you are poop you’d have it in–…wait i gave up, i forgot for a minute…crap…well im too lazy to hold Delete on all of this, so im just gona go with what ever it is i typed…unless it’s something bad……..okay i dont care anymore.
