Counting the Lies

Well someone finally gone down and dirty and counted up all the lies that got us into this mess. Once you lay it out, the number is pretty staggering: 935 lies by the President and senior administration officials. And this wasn't "spin" or "exaggeration" This was blatant:

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.

532 times the administration told the big lie. The WMD lie. The al-Qaida lie. The "Iraq is going to give WMD to al-Qaida" lie.

They lied. Don't forget.

A tough job, but I'm glad somebody did it. And it's hardly over...
