The big lie

Here's what the president said yesterday:

"We're at war with an enemy that attacked us on September the 11th, 2001," Mr. Bush said in his address here, to the American Legislative Exchange Council, a group of state legislators. "We're at war against an enemy that, since that day, has continued to kill."

He simply lies with impunity. Iraq did not attack us. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. The 9/11 Commission was clear about that. The president and vice president have even admitted this publicly and still they lie, determined as they are to implant the association in the American consciousness with no regard for the truth. This is the big lie that is repeated over and over and over.

What bothers me is that the news media are not even attempting to correct this. I'm quoting a New York Times article and no where in the article does it say, "In point of fact we went to war against a nation that had nothing to do with September the 11th, 2001."

When is the press going to grow a spine?

  1. no spine in sight just yet. the whole freaking world is supposed to be greatful that the evil dictator saddam is out of business. i think most of us would agree that saddam was bad, really freaking bad and him being out is probably a good thing. HOWEVER--bush doing it was not. bush is a liar, but no one dares to admit it, because that would be somehow condoning saddam. the question i have is "has bush now killed more innocent iraqi's than saddam?" the death toll is atrocious.
