935 reasons all in a line.
All of them good ones...
All of them lies.
The study counted 935 false statements in the two-year period. It found that in speeches, briefings, interviews and other venues, Bush and administration officials stated unequivocally on at least 532 occasions that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction or was trying to produce or obtain them or had links to al-Qaida or both.
"It is now beyond dispute that Iraq did not possess any weapons of mass destruction or have meaningful ties to al-Qaida," according to Charles Lewis and Mark Reading-Smith of the Fund for Independence in Journalism staff members, writing an overview of the study. "In short, the Bush administration led the nation to war on the basis of erroneous information that it methodically propagated and that culminated in military action against Iraq on March 19, 2003."
If we react with a yawn, will it mean that we've come to accept an even lower standard from our leaders? Just how badly does a president have to betray the public trust before they're held accountable? How can anyone, even righties, argue that this is no big deal, even if you accept the laughable premise that Bush and the rest were all completely sincere? What kind of message will doing nothing sent to future pols?
