The Liar in Chief really did goad us into war

By Diane Silver

People DIED and continue to die because of this. In today's top read, The Center for Public Integrity and the Fund for Independence in Journalism unveiled a report that showed:.
President George W. Bush and seven of his administration's top officials, including Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, made at least 935 false statements in the two years following September 11, 2001, about the national security threat posed by Saddam Hussein's Iraq. Nearly five years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, an exhaustive examination of the record shows that the statements were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses.
Am I angry? Oh yeah. Shouldn't all Americans be furious?
