Oh, the lies

Okay. Just read these quotes and look carefully at the dates:

There was a perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.

[Saddam] has not developed any significant capability with respect to weapons of mass destruction. He is unable to project conventional power against his neighbors. So in effect, our policies have strengthened the security of the neighbors of Iraq.

-- Colin Powell, February 24, 2001

We are able to keep his arms from him. His military forces have not been rebuilt.

-- Condoleeza Rice, July 2001

Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction.

-- Dick Cheney, Speech to VFW National Convention, August 26, 2002

Right now, Iraq is expanding and improving facilities that were used for the production of biological weapons.

-- George W. Bush, Speech to UN General Assembly, September 12, 2002

We know for a fact that there are weapons there.

-- Ari Fleischer, Press Briefing, January 9, 2003

Our intelligence officials estimate that Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent.

-- George W. Bush, State of the Union Address, January 28, 2003

We know that Saddam Hussein is determined to keep his weapons of mass destruction, is determined to make more.

-- Colin Powell, Remarks to UN Security Council, February 5, 2003

There's more where that came from. See the page entitled Iraq: The Words of Mass Deception on the What Really Happened website. Let's all get used to the words, "impeachable offenses". Because that's what this is about.
