    white house admits lying on iraq nuclear claims

    Bush wrong on Iraqi nuclear weapons

    http://www.cbc.ca/stories/2003/07/09/bush_claim030709


    WASHINGTON - Washington has admitted that a claim President George Bush made in January about Iraq's weapons programs was wrong.

    In his state of the union message, Bush tried to convince Americans and the rest of the world that Saddam Hussein's regime was a threat because he was developing a nuclear weapons program.

    "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa," Bush said in January.

    That statement was based on correspondence between officials in Iraq and Niger that are now widely accepted as forgeries.

    An official with the CIA was sent to Niger to investigate whether Iraq tried to buy uranium from the country.

    The official reported back that it was highly doubtful such a transaction ever took place.

    The official said the office of U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney would have received that report.

    The claim made it into the state of the union address anyway, and many in Washington are asking how that could have happened.

    "This is a very important admission. It's a recognition that we were provided with faulty information. And I think it's all the more reason why a full investigation of all the facts surrounding this situation be undertaken," said Tom Daschle, Democratic leader in the Senate.

    The U.S. National Security Council said the Bush administration didn't know until February that the intelligence behind the uranium claim was false.

    Members of Bush's Republican party downplayed the fact that it took five months for the White House to admit the claim was false, and maintained the decision to go to war in Iraq was morally right. ...even though we lied and scared the shit out of everyone, it was still..'morally right'. that's a whopper!

    of course most intelligent people knew this was the case..and while i am happy to see the lie exposed, i doubt that it will change many people's opinions of bush...those that love him will continue to support him..

    disgusting.

    is it just me or does it seem like more people and organizations are admitting they lied...or that they were provided with faulty info that ended up being false?

    interesting course...

    from dailykos.com

    What's really fun about the administration's sudden troubles is that it puts them in classic Catch-22. They can either 1) claim lied about its WMD claims, or 2) claim it was too incompetent to properly assess the intelligence. LIES or INCOMPETENCE. I'm down with either option. There's no way the administration can win unless the press loses interest and moves on to the latest JLo/Ben news.

    However, that's difficult to do when REAL former US intelligence officials continue to expose the administration's hostility toward the truth:

    And the more Bush and Comical Ari try to pin the failures on the intelligence agencies (who truly have been the "good guys" in all of this), the more those agencies will leak the truth.

    Iraq continues to fester. Over a thousands of our servicemembers wounded, hundreds dead. Billions wasted. Boy. If Bush wants to run on this in 2004, he's more than welcome.

    exactly, they have been setting up the intel apparatus to be the fall guys..
    rumsfeld is now pulling some bullshit rhetoric about how
    they had no 'new' information on iraq's weapons(?!?!) and that the ones
    that existed(?!?!?) were seen in a whole new light after 9/11(the ultimate
    fall guy if the intel shit doesn't convince). yet another example of the bush team
    USING and manipulating that terrible day for their own gain.
