A searchable index of Bush lies on Iraq - now available on US House of Representatives website

Iraq on the Record:
237 specific lies about Iraq by Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and Powell - all in a neat searchable index. Brought to you by the House of Representatives Oversight Committee.

Check it out here.
From the website:
Iraq on the Record is a searchable collection of 237 specific misleading statements made by Bush Administration officials about the threat posed by Iraq. It contains statements that were misleading based on what was known to the Administration at the time the statements were made. It does not include statements that appear mistaken only in hindsight. If a statement was an accurate reflection of U.S. intelligence at the time it was made, it was excluded even if it now appears erroneous.

Now, all of those who say Bush didn't lie, you can see for yourself. The specific lies are listed with an explanation as to why they were lies and how they were misleading.


Do you believe President Bush's actions justify impeachment? * 447211 responses
Yes, between the secret spying, the deceptions leading to war and more, there is plenty to justify putting him on trial.
No, like any president, he has made a few missteps, but nothing approaching "high crimes and misdemeanors."
No, the man has done absolutely nothing wrong. Impeachment would just be a political lynching.
I don't know.
