"Baahhh"

Way to so easily buy into rhetoric, America!

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A study by two nonprofit journalism organizations found that President Bush and top administration officials issued hundreds of false statements about the national security threat from Iraq in the two years following the 2001 terrorist attacks.
The study concluded 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."
The study was posted Tuesday on the Web site of the Center for Public Integrity, which worked with the Fund for Independence in Journalism.

Feel duped? Angry yet?

I think it was somewhere around 935 false statements, when they tallied them all up. Nice, huh? Integrity and honesty at work in the White House.

I've been f*cking furious about this ever since it started and it just got stronger.
