YET MORE LIES….Joby Warrick of the Washington Post reports on the latest evidence of WMD fabrications from the Bush administration:
On May 29, 2003, 50 days after the fall of Baghdad, President Bush proclaimed a fresh victory for his administration in Iraq: Two small trailers captured by U.S. and Kurdish troops had turned out to be long-sought mobile “biological laboratories.” He declared, “We have found the weapons of mass destruction.”
….But even as Bush spoke, U.S. intelligence officials possessed powerful evidence that it was not true….A secret fact-finding mission to Iraq ? not made public until now ? had already concluded that the trailers had nothing to do with biological weapons. Leaders of the Pentagon-sponsored mission transmitted their unanimous findings to Washington in a field report on May 27, 2003, two days before the president’s statement.
….”There was no connection to anything biological,” said one expert who studied the trailers. Another recalled an epithet that came to be associated with the trailers: “the biggest sand toilets in the world.”
Is this ever going to end? How many more deliberate fabrications would we learn about if we could just turn the White House upside down and shake it?
