Made in France – False Statements

by the squid

So finally, some poor graduate students were asked to over all the rhetoric leading up the the Iraq war. They found 935 false statements.

“The study counted 935 false statements in the two-year period. It found that in speeches, briefings, interviews and other venues, Bush and administration officials stated unequivocally on at least 532 occasions that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction or was trying to produce or obtain them or had links to al-Qaida or both.”

After all the BS that went into justifying going into Iraq, you’d think that after finding no WMDs, that the administration would revert to “Plan B”: Dropping a nuke filled crate it the middle of the desert with the words “Made in France” stamped on it.

It’d sure make a better picture than the girl with a prisoner on a leash.
