It's raining posts!
Sorry to post three times in like 15 minutes, but whatever.
Just wanted to let you know that over at the minority office of House Government Reform, Rep. Henry Waxman has prepared a rather interesting little catalogue. It contains a culling of misleading statments the Bush administration made about Iraq. From the website:
"This database identifies 237 specific misleading statements about the threat posed by Iraq made by these five officials [President George W. Bush, Vice President Richard Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of State Colin Powell, and National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice] in 125 public appearances in the time leading up to and after the commencement of hostilities in Iraq...All of the statements in the database were drawn from speeches, press conferences and briefings, interviews, written statements, and testimony by the five officials."
It's a pretty awesome settling of accounts. Go check it out, you can read the Bush Administration's many deceptions, catalogued by topic, with explainations as to how they are misleading.
Nice to see the Democrats gettin' fiesty again!
