Study: 935 False Statements Over Iraq

Right on the heels of that scintillating interchange with my new BBF who apparently has his head so far up his ass that he thinks clean air smells like shit, a new study came out that found that Baby Doc and his top minions made a total of 935 false statments about Iraq leading up to the illegal occupation.

In other words, as those of us out here in Left Blogistan have been saying for years, we were lied into the Iraq War.

The study was an extensive one, investigating public statements by the likes of "Colon" Powell, Kindasleazy Rice, Ari Fleischer (official "mouthpiece" of the BFEE in those days), Baby Doc himself, and especially Dickless Cheney. Including this classic from Crashcart's speech to the VFW convention in 2002:

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.
The plaintive whining of weak-minded Koolaid drinkers to the contrary, there simply were no longer enough WMDs to be a threat even to Gilligan's Island, let alone a huge nation halfway around the world.

It's especially interesting to see the study's criticism of the news media for their compliance with the BFEE in propagating The Big Lie. Yeah, that good old "liberal media" at work again.

Oh Farns buddy.. I hate to tell you this but there's a big difference between a false statement and a lie. John Kerry claiming in October 2004 that he's going to be our new President in November is a false statement but it sure isn't a lie.

Do you understand the difference.... Jeez, this would be more interesting if you knew simple terms and their meanings.

How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? That depends on what the definition of "is" is...
Most of these rise way above (or more likely fall way below) simple errors of fact.
You might want to actually read the report before you shotgunning in my direction.
