More Lies

Is it me (and millions of other Americans) or does G.W. seem more of a liar than big Bill ever was as every day goes by?

This is from Yahoo News:

“(NY Times) – The White House acknowledged for the first time today that President Bush was relying on incomplete and perhaps inaccurate information from American intelligence agencies when he declared, in his State of the Union speech, that Saddam Hussein had tried to purchase uranium from Africa. The White House statement appeared to undercut one of the key pieces of evidence that President Bush and his aides had cited to back their claims made prior to launching an attack against Iraq in March that Mr. Hussein was “reconstituting” his nuclear weapons program….”

  1. I didn’t click on the link, but this is probably in reference to some information that one of the agencies (CIA? DOD?) said came from Niger (not to be confused with Nigeria). I just clicked on the link, I’m correct on this.

    Listen, the President is at the mercy of the lackeys that give him the reports. He isn’t the one going out there hunting down the information. He has to trust that the info is correct when it’s put on his desk. So technically, he gave out faulty information, but it’s not his fault that it’s incorrect. And I would say the same of any President on this type of thing – even Bill Clinton.

  2. Before I clicked on the ‘Comments (1)’ link, I KNEW it would be “Freakin’ Jen” defending Dub.

  3. Somebody has to defend him. His numbers are dropping and fewer people are willing to stick their necks out for this criminal. Let me check today’s headlines to see what trouble he’s in today. BRB….

    Just as I thought. Today’s bad Bush news from the NY Times: the paper of record.

    “WASHINGTON, July 8 ? The federal commission investigating the Sept. 11 terror attacks said today that its work was being hampered by the failure of executive branch agencies, especially the Pentagon and the Justice Department, to respond quickly to requests for documents and testimony.

    The panel also said the failure of the Bush administration to allow officials to be interviewed without the presence of government colleagues could impede its investigation, with the commission’s chairman suggesting today that the situation amounted to “intimidation” of the witnesses.”

    Bush impeding in an investigation against his administration? No way.

    Check back tomorrow for the next installment of “Bad News Bush”.

  4. How can you tell when Clinton was lying?

    His lips move.

    I know that’s an old joke, but even slick willie’s friends were public about his inability to distinguish between the truth and his version of it. It’s why WhiteWater got so ugly, he and Hil can’t tell the truth, straight up and straight out.

    And it turns out that the CIA screwed up when they reviewed the speech. So, while it was incorrect, it was no lie.

    With Clinton it was always lies, and never reality. Of course, that depends on what the meaning of “is” is.

  5. I have been serving in Iraq for over five months now as a soldier in the 2nd Battalion of the 503rd Airborne Infantry Regiment, otherwise known as the “ROCK.”

    We entered the country at midnight on the 26th of March; one thousand of my fellow soldiers and I parachuted from 10 jumbo jets (known as C-17s) onto a cold, muddy field in Bashur, Northern Iraq. This parachute operation was the U.S. Army’s only combat jump of the war and opened up the northern front.

    Things have changed tremendously for our battalion since those first cold, wet weeks spent in the mountain city of Bashur. On April 10 our battalion conducted an attack south into the oil-rich town of Kirkuk, the city that has since become our home away from home and the focus of our security and development efforts.

    Kirkuk is a hot and dusty city of just over a million people. The majority of the city has welcomed our presence with open arms. After nearly five months here, the people still come running from their homes, in the 110-degree heat, waving to us as our troops drive by on daily patrols of the city. Children smile and run up to shake hands, in their broken English shouting “Thank you, mister.”

    The people of Kirkuk are all trying to find their way in this new democratic environment. Some major steps have been made in these last three months. A big reason for our steady progress is that our soldiers are living among the people of the city and getting to know their neighbors and the needs of their neighborhoods.

    We also have been instrumental in building a new police force. Kirkuk now has 1,700 police officers. The police are now, ethnically, a fair representation of the community as a whole. So far, we have spent more than $500,000 from the former Iraqi regime to repair each of the stations’ electricity and plumbing, to paint each station and make it a functional place for the police to work.

    The battalion also has assisted in re-establishing Kirkuk’s fire department, which is now even more effective than before the war. New water treatment and sewage plants are being constructed and the distribution of oil and gas are steadily improving.

    All of these functions were started by our soldiers here in this northern city and are now slowly being turned over to the newly elected city government. Laws are being rewritten to reflect democratic principles and a functioning judicial system was recently established to bridge the gap between law enforcement and the rule of law.

    The quality of life and security for the citizens has been largely restored and we are a large part of why that has happened.

    The fruits of all our soldiers’ efforts are clearly visible in the streets of Kirkuk today. There is very little trash in the streets, there are many more people in the markets and shops and children have returned to school.

    This is all evidence that the work we are doing as a battalion and as American soldiers is bettering the lives of Kirkuk’s citizens. I am proud of the work we are doing here in Iraq and I hope all of your readers are as well.
