In Case We Need Another Piece of Evidence of Bush Lying to Us

In another startling piece of evidence pointing to the Bush Administration cherry picking, lying and ignoring legitimate intelligence leading up to the Iraq War, we have this gem.

A high-level intelligence assessment by the Bush Administration
concluded in early 2002 that the sale of uranium from Niger to Iraq
was "unlikely" because of a host of economic, diplomatic and logistical
obstacles, according to a secret memo that was recently declassified by
the State Department.

Among other problems that made such a sale improbable, the
assessment by the State Department's intelligence analysts concluded,
was that it would have required Niger to send "25 hard-to-conceal
10-ton tractor-trailers" filled with uranium across 1,000 miles and at
least one international border.

Not even the collective volume of the brainless heads at the White House is vast enough to concel all that.

So, the Bush Administration concluded this in 2002. Yet Chimpy himself still spoke that infamous lie in the 2003 State of the Union speech, and still used the claim of Iraq's getting uranium from Niger as an excuse to march into Iraq and "liberate" them.

The dishonesty, manipulation, the total disregard humanity and the resulting havoc that's been wreaked around the world and the lives that have been lost or ruined by these guys is simply mind-boggling.
