the 16-word lie

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Jason Leopold writes at AlterNet about Bush’s infamous “16 words” in the SOTU about the Iraq/Niger uranium hoax:

Sixteen days before President Bush's January 28, 2003, State of the Union address in which he said that the US learned from British intelligence that Iraq had attempted to acquire uranium from Africa -- an explosive claim that helped pave the way to war -- the State Department told the CIA that the intelligence the uranium claims were based upon were forgeries, according to a newly declassified State Department memo.

I await the White House admission that Dubya was either a) lying, or b) out-of-touch.
