Cheney, Bush knowingly lied, thousands have died.

Evidence continues to flow in proving conclusively that Bush and his henchmen knowingly lied in their attempt to stampede the nation into war, lies which are responsible for thousands of deaths and untold number of ruined lives.

Add to that an increasing number of retired generals who have courageiously stepped forward to call for Rumsfeld's ouster and for the Bush administration's utter contempt for any information which conflicted with their pre-established goal of invading Iraq. It's clear that intelligence was indeed "fixed" to support this reckless and disasterous invasion.

One general even labeled Cheney "paranoid", saying that Cheney was so frightened of a nuclear or biological attack that he went way out of bounds in his actions and flirtation with a dicatorship.

Almost every single word Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Powell said regarding the capabilities of Iraq to attack us and to produce WMDs have now proven to not only be utterly false, but that they knew this at the time they were making these attempts to scare people into the rush to war.

In other words, they're crooks, liars, and the deaths of thousands are on their hands.
On May 29, 2003, 50 days after the fall of Baghdad, President Bush proclaimed a fresh victory for his administration in Iraq: Two small trailers captured by U.S. and Kurdish troops had turned out to be long-sought mobile "biological laboratories." He declared, "We have found the weapons of mass destruction."

The claim, repeated by top administration officials for months afterward, was hailed at the time as a vindication of the decision to go to war. But even as Bush spoke, U.S. intelligence officials possessed powerful evidence that it was not true.
A secret fact-finding mission to Iraq -- not made public until now -- had already concluded that the trailers had nothing to do with biological weapons. Leaders of the Pentagon-sponsored mission transmitted their unanimous findings to Washington in a field report on May 27, 2003, two days before the president's statement.

The three-page field report and a 122-page final report three weeks later were stamped "secret" and shelved. Meanwhile, for nearly a year, administration and intelligence officials continued to publicly assert that the trailers were weapons factories."
