Well, here we are again with another episode of "The Days of Our Lies", starring George W. Bush. For this installment, let me take you back to 2002, when "man who does not know truth" opened his mouth and let fly not one, not two, but three...yes, three lies. Of course, as is usually the case, they were told in an effort to gain momentum in the attack of Iraq, but that's besides the point....at least for any true American is should be....
Back in October of 2002, as he addressed the nation concerning his arch rival Saddamm, Bush made certain that fear was garnered in this country toward Hussein when he stated that Iraq had a growing fleet of unmanned aircraft that could be used "for missions targeting the United States."
Just a month before that statement, when asked whether or not the evidence is conclusive regarding Hussein's nuclear opportunity, Bush pointed to a report he'd read by the International Atomic Energy Agency reporting that the Iraqi's were only a mere "six months away from developing a weapon."
And just after the first statement above, the prez complained about labor unions objections to having radiation detectors standard uniform for customs officials, stating this could delay his policy against terrorism "for a long period of time."
Whew...that's a heckuva hunk of cheese. Too bad it's covered with mold.
The real deal: As is the case with most polititians, Bush says what he needs to say to get what he wants, regardless of truth.
The unmanned aircraft Bush alluded to that could be used against the US could never be used against the US because they are not built to make it this far. Heck, they couldn't even get halfway here.
The report that he read by the IAEA that said Iraq was 6 months away from nuclear capabilities just simply has never existed. There is no report, and there never has been one.
As for the radiation detectors and that damn labor union, well, that issue was resolved ages before Bush even made his statement about it. Never an issue other than to use it for his gain.
Lies like a well-traversed rug in the Miami heat and people look at him like the second coming. Unfortunately for those who know better, he is completely contrary to He of the first coming, Jesus Christ. Not that it matters to Bush, since he continues to lie and people continue to not care.
Will I ever awake from this nightmare.
Till next time, take care and God bless,
