Real Eyes Realize Real Lies

Bush alone made 232 of these statements, according to the report.

Here are some samplings:

"Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us." Vice President Dick Cheney -- August 26, 2002.

"The Iraqi regime possesses biological and chemical weapons, is rebuilding the facilities to make more and, according to the British government, could launch a biological or chemical attack in as little as 45 minutes after the order is given. . . . This regime is seeking a nuclear bomb, and with fissile material could build one within a year." President George W. Bush -- September, 2002.

In July 2002, Donald Rumsfeld had a one-word answer in response to reporters who asked whether Iraq was connected to Al Qaeda terrorists: "Sure." The report adds "An assessment issued that same month by the Defense Intelligence Agency (and confirmed weeks later by CIA Director Tenet) found an absence of "compelling evidence demonstrating direct cooperation between the government of Iraq and Al Qaeda." What's more, an earlier DIA assessment said that "the nature of the regime's relationship with Al Qaeda is unclear.’”

"We found the weapons of mass destruction. We found biological laboratories," Bush -- May 29, 2003 in an interview with Polish TV.

"What we're giving you are facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence. I will cite some examples, and these are from human sources," Colin Powell to the United Nations Security Council -- February 5, 2003.
