Bush lied when he claimed Iraq possessed WMD that posed a threat to the United States. It did not and he knew it.

This is a lie...

No. It's an example of a lie. Anyway...

That's untrue. (It's probably not a lie because you probably don't know it's untrue.) Even Woodward knows this. Or at least he did four months ago when this story first "broke."
