IRAQGATE How Bush Justified A War With Lies
The Bush Administration's Iraq strategy appeared to be based on the proposition that if you repeat lies enough times, people will accept them as facts. This pattern of deception and deceit rivals the Nixon Administration and, as former Nixon White House counsel John Dean points out, launching a country into war based on fabrications would make Watergate "pale by comparison."
 
White House Admits fabricating case for war
Now, in a stunning admission, the White House confirms that the president's statement was simply not true. It was a mistake, aides acknowledge, to include it in the State of the Union.
 
The Crime and the Cover-Up
Clearly, there is a scandal brewing over the Iraq war and the Bush administration claims of Iraqi weapons arsenals that led to the shooting. Clearly, there is a cover-up taking place. Yet this instance, the crimes that have led to the cover-up are worse by orders of magnitude than the cover-up itself.

A high-ranking military officer reveals how Defense Department extremists suppressed information and twisted the truth to drive the country to war.
 
CIA Probe Finds Secret Pentagon Group Manipulated Intelligence on Iraqi Threat
A half-dozen former CIA agents investigating prewar intelligence have found that a secret Pentagon committee, set up by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld in October 2001, manipulated reams of intelligence information prepared by the spy agency on the so-called Iraqi threat and then delivered it to top White House officials who used it to win support for a war in Iraq.
 
SELECTIVE INTELLIGENCE by SEYMOUR M. HERSH
Donald Rumsfeld has his own special sources. Are they reliable?
They call themselves, self-mockingly, the Cabal—conceived by Paul Wolfowitz, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, a small cluster of policy advisers and analysts now based in the Pentagon’s Office of Special Plans have produced a skein of intelligence reviews that have helped to shape public opinion and American policy toward Iraq.
 
Iraq on the Record - The Bush Administration's Public Statements on Iraq Data Base of Lies
In recent days, Administration officials have made statements that are inconsistent with or contradict previous public statements.
 
10 Appalling Lies We Were Told About Iraq
No chemical, biological or nuclear weapons have been found in Iraq, nor any documentation of their existence, nor any sign they were deployed in the field. The mainstream press, after an astonishing two years of cowardice, is belatedly drawing attention to the unconscionable level of administrative deception. They seem surprised to find that when it comes to Iraq, the Bush administration isn't prone to the occasional lie of expediency but, in fact, almost never told the truth.
Blowing a Whistle on Bush's 9/11 Failures
After more than 3,000 people were killed on 9/11 by 19 hijackers, none of whom were Iraqi, Clarke said, "The president dragged me into a room with a couple of other people, shut the door and said, 'I want you to find whether Iraq did this,' and in a very intimidating way. I mean that we should come back with that answer."
 
The president's real goal in Iraq
This war, should it come, is intended to mark the official emergence of the United States as a full-fledged global empire, seizing sole responsibility and authority as planetary policeman. It would be the culmination of a plan 10 years or more in the making, carried out by those who believe the United States must seize the opportunity for global domination, even if it means becoming the "American imperialists" that our enemies always claimed we were. Once that is understood, other mysteries solve themselves.
 
Mission Iraq - View of an obsessed administration grows clearer
The new book by Washington Post editor Bob Woodward is the third in recent months to assert that President George W. Bush charted a far more determined course to invade Iraq than the American public was led to believe. Parts of each book describe an obsession by some in the Bush inner circle with removing Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, a proposal that became politically palatable after the 9/11 attacks, although Hussein was not involved in them.
 
Intelligence Report
One of the most under-reported findings of the joint congressional inquiry into the suicide hijackings of 9/11, published July 24, is that U.S. intelligence had no evidence that Iraq was involved in the attacks or that it supported the al-Qaeda terrorist network that planned and carried them out.
 
Mr. Bush, You Are A Liar, By William Rivers Pitt
Death knows no political affiliation, and a bloody lie is a bloody lie is a bloody lie. The time has come for Congress to fulfill their constitutional duties in this matter, to defend the nation and the soldiers who live and die in her service. The definition of 'is' has flown right out the window. This 'is' a crime. George W. Bush lied to the people, and lied to Congress. There are a lot of people dead because of it.
 
That's the Way the Coalition Cookie Crumbles-by Mark Drolette
The Spanish election, despite supercharged protestations from the American right, was an intelligent, dignified call for truth regarding the Iraq war and how to combat real terrorists, and has given other nations the courage to publicly voice their doubts about President Bush’s failed, dishonest “pre-emptive” strategy. Might this prompt the inevitable collapse of his house of lies to occur sooner rather than later?
 
Interview: 27-Year CIA Veteran Ray McGovern
"My primary attention is on the forgery of the Niger documents that supposedly proved Iraq was developing a nuclear program. It seems to me that you can have endless arguments about the correct interpretation of this or that piece of intelligence, or intelligence analysis, but a forgery is a forgery. It?s demonstrable that senior officials of this government, including the Vice President, knew that it was a forgery in March of last year. It was used anyway to deceive our Congressmen and Senators into voting for an unprovoked war."
 
Kennedy Says Iraq War Case a 'Fraud'
The case for going to war against Iraq was a fraud ``made up in Texas" to give Republicans a political boost, Sen. Edward Kennedy said Thursday.
 
Bush Said Iraq Talks Concerned Afghanistan
Following an important meeting on Iraq war planning in late 2001, President Bush told the public that the discussions were about Afghanistan. He made no mention afterward about Iraq even though that was the real focus of the session at his ranch.
 
Gen. Zinni: 'They've Screwed Up'
“There has been poor strategic thinking in this,” says Zinni. “There has been poor operational planning and execution on the ground. And to think that we are going to ‘stay the course,’ the course is headed over Niagara Falls.
 
SMEARING GENERAL ZINNI
"The more he listened to [Deputy Defense Secretary Paul] Wolfowitz and other administration officials talk about Iraq, the more Zinni became convinced that interventionist 'neoconservative' ideologues were plunging the nation into a war in a part of the world they didn't understand.
 
LIES, DAMNED LIES AND TERROR WARNINGS-John Pilger
On November 7, the day before the United Nations Security Council voted on a resolution that made an American and British attack on Iraq more than likely, Downing Street began issuing warnings of imminent terrorist threats against the United Kingdom.
 
New Evidence Bush Pushed Iraq War Right After 9/11
According to a report in the new edition of Vanity Fair, former British Ambassador to the United States Christopher Meyer said that President Bush made clear at a dinner4 with Prime Minister Tony Blair nine days after the Sept. 11 attacks that he wanted to confront Iraq. The assertion is corroborated by the Washington Post, which reported that President Bush personally signed a two-and-a-half page directive on September 17th, 2001 ordering the Pentagon to begin drawing up Iraq invasion plans.
 
Lynch Rescue Unnecessary
The U.S. commandos refused a key and instead broke down doors and went in with guns drawn. They carried away the prisoner in the dead of night with helicopter and armored vehicle backup — even though there was no Iraqi military presence and the hospital staff didn't resist.

Army Stage-Managed Fall of Hussein Statue
As the Iraqi regime was collapsing on April 9, 2003, Marines converged on Firdos Square in central Baghdad, site of an enormous statue of Saddam Hussein. It was a Marine colonel — not joyous Iraqi civilians, as was widely assumed from the TV images — who decided to topple the statue, the Army report said.
 
  Weapons of Mass Destruction
 
'The Lies of George W. Bush' by David Corn
Before the Iraq war, Bush claimed that Saddam Hussein was "dealing with" al Qaeda and that it was this connection that made Hussein a threat to America.
The evidence--or lack of evidence--continues to mount suggesting that Bush and his aides made false statements about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction before the war.

MOSAIC OF LIES
Tracing The Pattern of WMD Lies Back To The Source
"According to the former official, also feeding information to the Office of Special Plans was a secret, rump unit established last year in the office of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon of Israel. This unit, which paralleled Shulsky's – and which has not previously been reported – prepared intelligence reports on Iraq in English (not Hebrew) and forwarded them to the Office of Special Plans. It was created in Sharon's office, not inside Israel's Mossad intelligence service, because the Mossad – which prides itself on extreme professionalism – had views closer to the CIA's, not the Pentagon's, on Iraq. This secretive unit, and not the Mossad, may well have been the source of the forged documents purporting to show that Iraq tried to purchase yellowcake uranium for weapons from Niger in West Africa, according to the former official."

Spying and Speeches
Unlikely as it sounds, there's a bit more to be said about the famous 16 words in President Bush's State of the Union address. The more you know about the 16 words, the more you realize how murky the intelligence business is.
 
Uranium Claim Was Known for Months to Be Weak
Recent revelations by officials at the CIA, the State Department, the United Nations, in Congress and elsewhere make clear that the weakness of the claim in the State of the Union speech was known and accepted by a wide circle of intelligence and diplomatic personnel scrutinizing information on Iraqi weapons programs months before the speech.
 
Here you have the bogus dossier on Saddam’s uranium
Like a spy story not too long on imagination, the tale began with a break-in. The Via Baiamonti break-in was the start of the tale that was to lead George W. Bush 24 months later,on 28 January 2003, to utter the 16 words in the State of the Union address: "The British Government has learned that Saddam has recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."
 
Follow the Yellowcake Road
Did it start with a break-in? On the morning of Jan. 2, 2001, Italian police discovered that the Niger Embassy in Rome had been ransacked. Not much was reported missing. Italian investigators, who only last week reopened the case, have theorized that the thieves who broke into the Niger Embassy had come looking for letterhead stationery and official seals that could be copied to create bogus documents.
 
Depiction of Threat Outgrew Supporting Evidence
This article is based on interviews with analysts and policymakers inside and outside the U.S. government, and access to internal documents and technical evidence not previously made public.
The new information indicates a pattern in which President Bush, Vice President Cheney and their subordinates -- in public and behind the scenes -- made allegations depicting Iraq's nuclear weapons program as more active, more certain and more imminent in its threat than the data they had would support. On occasion administration advocates withheld evidence that did not conform to their views. The White House seldom corrected misstatements or acknowledged loss of confidence in information upon which it had previously relied:
 
Coalition faked it, says UN
A few hours and a simple internet search was all it took for UN inspectors to realize documents backing US and British claims that Iraq had revived its nuclear program were crude fakes, a UN official said.
 
Is Libby the Phantom Bigfoot?
It's probably only a matter of seconds before we find out which White House official insisted that the fateful yellowcake reference be inserted into the State of the Union address. We now know for certain somebody did because Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., blabbed on Good Morning, America that CIA Director George Tenet dropped a dime on him (or her) in yesterday's closed-to-the-public hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

9/11 Panel Says Iraq Rebuffed Bin Laden
Bluntly contradicting the Bush administration, the commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks reported Wednesday there was "no credible evidence" that Saddam Hussein helped al-Qaida target the United States.
 
Iraq-al Qaeda links weak, say former Bush officials
Three former Bush administration officials who worked on intelligence and national security issues have told National Journal that the prewar evidence tying al Qaeda to Iraq was tenuous, exaggerated, and often at odds with the conclusions of key intelligence agencies.
 
Hussein ties to al Qaeda appear faulty
Nearly a year after U.S. and British troops invaded Iraq, no evidence has turned up to verify allegations of Hussein's links with al Qaeda, and several key parts of the administration's case have either proved false or seem increasingly doubtful.
