Bush's lies have cost U.S. too much
Public Opinion (Chambersburg, PA)
Recently as I watched George Bush launch his dog and pony show from Fort Bragg, I was not impressed, as most Americans were not. The script was same as usual, filled with lies and no answers as to how and when our young men and women will be getting out of this disaster which Bush created in Iraq.
On May 1, the London Times made public a confidential memo detailing a July 2002 meeting held at Downing Street between Tony Blair and military intelligence chiefs. The subject was support for the Bush administration's plans for war in Iraq.
According to the minutes, the head of British Intelligence Service, Richard Dearlove, had just returned from a meeting in Washington to announce that the decision to invade had already been made. The Bush administration was working on building an intelligence case, based on terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, to justify the upcoming war. Vice President Cheney had made several visits to the CIA to make sure the intelligence would fit policy lies.
Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld's lies have cost the lives of over 1,800 men and women, 14,000 wounded and permanently disabled and over 100,000 Iraqi men, women and children dead. The financial costs stand at over $350 billion and growing at a cost of $1 billion a week.
President Clinton was impeached for lying about sex. Why is Bush given a free pass?
