Bush Just Can't Surprise Me Anymore

There's new evidence that Bush knew damn well he was lying to the American public and he did it anyway.
On May 29, 2003, 50 days after the fall of Baghdad, President Bush proclaimed a fresh victory for his administration in Iraq: Two small trailers captured by U.S. troops had turned out to be long-sought mobile "biological laboratories." He declared, "We have found the weapons of mass destruction."

The claim, repeated by top administration officials for months afterward, was hailed at the time as a vindication of the decision to go to war. But even as Bush spoke, U.S. intelligence officials possessed powerful evidence that it was not true.


The three-page field report and a 122-page final report three weeks later were stamped "secret" and shelved. Meanwhile, for nearly a year, administration and intelligence officials continued to publicly assert that the trailers were weapons factories.

Ya see, back then Bush had to lie to get what he wanted. He felt he needed America's approval. Of course today he wouldn't worry about that. As in the NSA spying, he says he is already doing it and will keep on doing no matter what we think. Sort of like a dictator would behave, huh?
