Lies, and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them

(With apologies to Michael Moore)

TheStar.com - U.S. links Iraq war to 9/11 terror strike: "Deputy Defence Secretary Paul Wolfowitz has directly linked the war on Iraq to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, signalling another shift in Washington's defence of a conflict that continues to claim American lives.

Wolfowitz, in a series of interviews on U.S. television networks yesterday, appeared to ignore intelligence reports, which have discredited links between Iraq and Al Qaeda and the war on terrorism.

He sought to defend President George W. Bush's administration against charges that it had misled Americans on the threat posed by deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, saying the government cannot wait for 'murky' intelligence to crystallize because it may be too late.

'The battle to secure the peace in Iraq is now the central battle on the war on terrorism,' Wolfowitz said on Meet the Press. "

Memo to Mr. Wolfowitz: The Taliban is regrouping in Afghanistan.

The problem has never been "murky" intelligence. It's distorted intelligence, intelligence that's been ignored because it didn't support the predeermined conclusion.

It's time for a special prosecutor.
