President George W. Bush is accusing his Iraq War critics of rewriting history and endangering U.S. troops. In a Veterans Day speech at an Army depot in Pennsylvania, the president said Democrats and other critics who claim he manipulated pre-war intelligence to justify war are flinging “false charges.” He called them “baseless attacks,” and said they send the wrong signal to U.S. troops in Iraq, as well as an enemy bent on shaking America’s will.
No wonder a majority of American’s think Bush is a liar. He simply cannot stop lying. It is without dispute that his administration lied America into Iraq. There were no WMD there as he claimed, there were no nukes there as he claimed, there were no ties to Al-Qaeda as he claimed, Iraq did not attack us on 9-11 as he claimed, the war was not going to make us safer as he claimed, and muslims were not going to embrace American imposed Democracy as he claimed.
For a proven liar to mount a “comeback” by continuing the same lies when time has proven them false is sickening. For Bush and Cheney to use the troops for this campaign style activity on Veteran’s Day, and to speak for them, when both of them ran like cowards from the front line is even more sickening.
The fact that many Democrats and other Americans once believed his wild claims about the need for a pre-emptive war does not prove that Bush was right, it proves that Bush is an effective liar.
