The word "lie" is really not the applicable term to use in terms of the policy setting and military strategy in Iraq. It's too easy to weasel away from proof that "Fact A" was known and conveyed as "False Fact B" --- the teams involved failed to objectively consider all facts present and could just claim they never saw Fact A but they never "saw" it because they never sought it. Adjectives like "incompetent", "pig-headed", "arrogant" and "idealogically blinded" all do apply. In the context of sending the country to war for a decade, committing $807 billion dollars in direct costs we didn't have and refused to raise in taxes to pay for, killing 4,486 US troops, wounding over 31,928 US troops, and exposing over 2.3 million troops to repeated combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and the asso

You can try to change the topic all you want. And your screed was nothing but that.

Obama was and is a liar, and got caught red handed. Bush may have been totally incompetent. But those claiming he was a liar have zilch except conspiracy theories. There was a lot of backup of Bush's beliefs. To say otherwise is simply to be lying about Bush, just as they and many have chosen to lie about the simple and obvious truth regarding Obama
