TV Station Rejects Ad, Says There's "No Proof" Bush Lied About WMD
By David Sirota
This is really incredible. A CBS television affiliate in Boise, Idaho is refusing to air an ad by critics of the Iraq War because, unlike the American public, it says "there is no proof" that President Bush lied about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction. No proof? I mean, really? No proof?
How about the CIA's October 2004 report, which CNN noted said:
"Saddam Hussein did not possess stockpiles of illicit weapons at the time of the U.S. invasion in March 2003 and had not begun any program to produce them...Iraq's WMD program was essentially destroyed in 1991 and Saddam ended Iraq's nuclear program after the 1991 Gulf War."
How about President Bush's own top weapons inspector, David Kay, in 2004? Again, the excerpt from CNN:
"David Kay said Sunday that his group found no evidence Iraq had stockpiled unconventional weapons before the U.S.-led invasion in March...'My summary view, based on what I've seen, is we're very unlikely to find large stockpiles of weapons, he said on National Public Radio's 'Weekend Edition.' 'I don't think they exist.'"
I could go on here, but instead, if you want more, just go read the piece linked below that I wrote in 2004, when this issue was settled.
Seriously, folks - are we actually still having this argument? Or is this really once again another transparent effort to simply silence criticism of the war?
