935 Lies told between 2001 and 2003…

January 23, 2008

… by the current assministration. To expand on the del.icio.us link, a bit more information

To quote the report:

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.

I know that its not a surprise to the smart people who read this, but its nice to have a selection of the lies that the American People have been told by their “elected” representatives. Meteor Blades writes about beginning of the documentation of the lies told us. I searched through the database, and I was impressed at the quality of the data. I searched for WMD, and it found 969 incidences of the letters. As I scroll through, references to the search term were highlighted, and it even found “weapons of mass destruction,” references. Impressive!

My intent in starting this was to document the crap that we’ve been put thru by the clueless administration. When I first looked at technorati on the subject, there were 21 references, I hope this gets a lot more coverage. So I’m including the link to track.
Technorati Search: “935 Lies”
And in other good news, 363 days till we have a presidential inauguration!!
