Lies, I tells you, damn lies...

Salon's got an interesting article today, The Lies that Led to War, which talks about the, uhm, less-than-truths which helped lead our country into war with Iraq. It starts off with a great observation about the hypocrasy of outrage over the recent Newsweek/Quran debacle as compared to the non-outrage over ever mounting evidence of the President's, uhm, less-than-truths. It discusses the recently leaked British memo, which I will admit I knew nothing about until today, which noted that "the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy" by President Bush and buddies. It then rehashes many of the other things that have come out over the past year about the lead-up to war. A very intereting read, and it really makes one wish that the Dem's had the balls of the Republicans, because if this was seven years ago, you know the Republicans would have been all up in Clinton's grill.
