How Can You Tell Karl Rove Is Lying?

His lips are moving, silly! From OpEd News:

In his new memoir, Karl Rove does what he does best. To explain away one lie, he comes up with another. He claims that Bush probably would not have invaded Iraq had he known there were no weapons of mass destruction there. Bush knew perfectly well that our WMD intelligence had been fully discredited. So did everyone else. Anyone who says otherwise is lying. It’s a lie that Bush and his apologists have been repeating for almost seven years.

And media bobbleheads have let them get away with it…

For the umpteenth time, on March 7, 2003 the U.N. inspectors reported that there was zero evidence that Iraq had ever made any attempt to develop a nuclear weapon after the Persian Gulf War. Those findings were later affirmed by Bush’s own Iraq Survey Group, which said “Iraq did not possess a nuclear device, nor had it tried to reconstitute a capability to produce nuclear weapons after 1991.”

As for other types of WMD, Hans Blix also found zero evidence of weapons of mass destruction, aside from a small number of empty chemical munitions, which should have been declared and destroyed. Blix also explained why the evidence previously presented by Colin Powell was bogus. On March 7, 2003, Blix said his team needed a few more weeks to complete their work. Germany, France and others went on the record, stating, “While suspicions remain, no evidence has been given that Iraq still possesses weapons of mass destruction or capabilities in this field.

Yeah, they didn’t want to acknowledge that the bombing runs ordered by Bill Clinton might have actually done the job — because the Republicans and their media enablers said Clinton ordered the bombing only to distract from the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

  1. The Bush administration created the Office of Special Plans (headed by Douglas Feith) within the Pentagon to cherry-pick only the intelligence they wanted. Another story the corporate media deliberately ignored.
