The Bush Betrayal: Chapter 15

We continue coverage of this awesome book with another small sample:

        Chapter Title: Afghan Absurdities

In the wake of the U.S. military victory, President Bush warned America in his State of the Union address on January 29, 2002: "Our discoveries in Afghanistan confirmed our worst fears....We have found diagrams of American nuclear power plants and public water facilities....What we have found in Afghanistan confirms that, far from ending there, our war against terror is only beginning."1
. . .
Two years later, the Bush administration admitted that the president's statement was false and that no nuclear power plant diagrams had been discovered in Afghanistan. A senior Bush administrtion official told the Wall Street Journal, "There's no additional basis for the language in the speech that we have found."3 Nuclear Regulatory Commissioner Edward McGaffigan, who had testified in 2002 on this issue on closed hearing on Capitol Hill, commented that Bush was "poorly served by a speechwriter."4

What a crock. Bush was busy lying to us for the entirety of his entire presidency. The so-called liberal media failed to act in a 'liberal' fasion and tell us that Bush had lied to get us to support his illegal war of choice.
