Team Bush Falsified Iraq Evidence

B. Thomas Cooper - Editor

It is now official, and officially documented.
George W. Bush and his cronies willfully manipulated evidence prior to the invasion of Iraq, with the intent of frightening Americans into supporting the invasion.

On Thursday, a 121 page report by the Pentagon’s acting Inspector General Thomas F. Gimble was released in full by Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, who accompanied the release with a statement of his own, in part, stating: "It is important for the public to see why the Pentagon's Inspector General concluded that Secretary Feith's office 'developed, produced and then disseminated alternative intelligence assessments on the Iraq and al-Qaeda relationship,' which included 'conclusions that were inconsistent with the consensus of the Intelligence Community.' "

So much for plausible denial.

They knew damn well what they were up to. With most Americans still reeling from the September 11th attacks, the administration employed a few terror tactics of their own, frightening the US populace into submission. No
patriotic American would dare question the rhetoric. It just wouldn’t have been prudent.

Anyone who did so was demonized, ridiculed, marginalized, and cast aside.
The mantra was deafening, but dumb. We need to fight them there before they can bring it back here, etc. We can’t wait for the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.

Shoot now, let God sort ‘em out…

And indeed, we did just that.

The invasion went on as planned. No-one gave a damn that it was in clear violation of US and international law. Few acknowledged the glaring discrepancies. Bush wanted war at any cost.

At any cost.

Bush wanted war so bad he could taste it. He wanted war so bad he was willing to lie to about it, over and over again. He would not take no for an answer. Obviously, Mr. Bush got what he wanted.
