Study: 935 False Statements About Iraq in "Orchesrated Campaign" to Deceive

The Democratic Activist
I heard this story broadcast on the CNN news this morning over the car radio. Apparently, even the mainstream media is finally getting it.

A recently released study by the non-partisan Center for Public Integrity confirms that:

"President George W. Bush and seven of his administration's top officials, including Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, made at least 935 false statements in the two years following September 11, 2001, about the national security threat posed by Saddam Hussein's Iraq. Nearly five years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, an exhaustive examination of the record shows 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."

Read the entire report here.

(To access the searchable database of 935 false statements used in the study, click here).

So, apparently, it's official: Bush lied, a million died.

How much more of this kind of misleadership are we Americans going to take ... or can we afford to take?

If you're like me, your jaw just can't drop any lower without dislocating, and you've truly had enough ... click here, here, and here to see what you can do.

Thank you.

Pass it on.
