The lies of the Bushites brought us where?
If President Obama does not wish to go back and take care of old business, if he refuses to deal with the lies of the Bush administration relative to 9/11, Iraq, torture, etc., he is wrong. The future cannot be secured without staunching the bleeding wounds of the past, for the pain remains. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and all the nogoodniks who, through their chicanery, brought our country to its knees, need to be held accountable and justice must be served.
Leftist Grandpa has an excellent piece detailing some of the lies told to the American people by the Bush administration that have brought US involvement in Iraq to its present quagmire. And no, no matter what anyone says, we have not won the war and we are not, winning the war!
It begins with this quote:
"Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction." - Dick Cheney, Vice President, in a speech to the VFW National Convention - 8/26/02
It continues with this quote:
"The president of the United States and the Secretary of Defense would not assert as plainly and bluntly as they have that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction if it was not true, and if they did not have a solid basis for saying it." - Ari Fleischer, Press Secretary in response to a question from the press - 12/4/02.
And it ends with this quote:
"I think the burden is on those people who think he didn't have weapons of mass destruction to tell the world where they are." - Ari Fleischer, Press Secretary at a press briefing - 7/9/2003.
And there is much more in between!
