Former federal prosecutor, Elizabeth De La Vega
distills the complexity of the White House conspiracy that led us into the war in Iraq; a war that has cost the American people much more than they would have ever been willing to give, if they knew the truth. This passage in particular squarely hits the nail on the head:
From the fall of 2001 to at least March 2003, the following officials, and others, made hundreds of false assertions in speeches, on television, at the United Nations, to foreign leaders and to Congress: President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and his Under Secretary, Paul Wolfowitz. Their statements were remarkably consistent and consistently false.
A refresher for some, an eye-opener for many, and yes, blasphemy for the loyalists... But true none the less. Read it. Share it.
