The Liberals Are Going To Need A New Slogan

By Wyatt Earp | June 9, 2008

Ironically, “Bush Lied, People Died” is, in fact, a LIE!

But don’t just take my word for it, take Democrat Senator Jay Rockefeller’s own report - the one where he conveniently left out a lot of information - or take the word of The Washington Post:

But dive into Rockefeller’s report, in search of where exactly President Bush lied about what his intelligence agencies were telling him about the threat posed by Saddam Hussein, and you may be surprised by what you find.

On Iraq’s nuclear weapons program? The president’s statements “were generally substantiated by intelligence community estimates.”

On biological weapons, production capability and those infamous mobile laboratories? The president’s statements “were substantiated by intelligence information.”

On chemical weapons, then? “Substantiated by intelligence information.”

On weapons of mass destruction overall (a separate section of the intelligence committee report)? “Generally substantiated by intelligence information.” Delivery vehicles such as ballistic missiles? “Generally substantiated by available intelligence.” Unmanned aerial vehicles that could be used to deliver WMDs? “Generally substantiated by intelligence information.”

You can read the rest of the damning evidence at Ace of Spades HQ.

Normally, I would be ecstatic about information like this, but then I remembered that the MSM probably won’t mention it (I’m surprised the WaPo did), and most hardcore Leftists won’t believe it. Oh well, the truth hurts sometimes.

    It’s been well known to most of the military for a LONG time… but you are right, the MSM will NOT cover it, cause it would upset too many people… sigh…

    It will be swept under the rug. Never to see the light of day.

    I was beginning wonder if I was the only that remembers the numerous times the intelligence community was cited in the reports/justification given.

    I’ve completely given up on debating people on this topic. Everyone on both sides of the issue have pretty much made up their minds. The consensus across the board, and on both sides of the aisle, was that Iraq had bio and chem weapons, and that they were actively pursuing a nuclear program. That consensus reversed 180 degrees almost simultaneously with the run up to the Iraq war. Same evidence, different conclusion; politics at its best.

    As for a slogan change, don’t count on it.

    This is not information for which to become ecstatic. It is information that creates sorrow, grief, but resolution. My reasoning for entering Iraq differs GREATLY from most anyone else, but that is because I have read the book “THE CLOSED CIRCLE” by David Pryce-Jones.

    Old NFO - I’m still waiting to hear it . . . nope, nothing.

    Admiral - Obviously, since my local news hasn’t mentioned it at all. I guess the 24 hours of the heat wave was more important.

    RT - Hundreds. A lie needs intent, and there was none here. He, and many other senators with D’s after their name agreed with the assessments.

    John D - Agreed. Many people already had their minds made up, which is why this news won’t matter to a lot of liberals.

    BZ - Never read it. I’ll have to check it out.

    Randal - I think George should have told that to Jay Rockefeller.
