Remember: They Are Liars

I generally don’t republish someone else’s writing wholecloth, but this piece by William Rivers Pitt for Truthout is worth it on two counts. First, it includes a link that I am amazed to discover is still live on the White House web site. Second, it is the truth. Without further adieu…

No one is such a liar as the indignant man.
– Friedrich Nietzsche

George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Condoleezza Rice, along with a slew of administration underlings and a revolving-door cavalcade of brass hats from the Pentagon, have been making claims regarding Iraq for many years now.

They claimed Iraq was in possession of 26,000 liters of anthrax, “enough to kill several million people,” according to a page on the White House web site titled Disarm Saddam Hussein.

They lied.

They claimed Iraq was in possession of 38,000 liters of botulinum toxin.

They lied.

They claimed Iraq was in possession of 500 tons, which equals 1,000,000 pounds, of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent.

The University of Kansas: Orange Bowl and NCAA Men’s Basketball National Champions (!)

Glorious! Just glorious! There was rolling thunder here in Lawrence throughout the game and it certainly seemed a good omen. Turns out, it was. I would like to say thank you to Jay Bilas, as he is the only one of the national broadcasters covering the game last night that picked KU to win. Way to recognize, Jay. Honorable mention goes to Coach Bobby Knight for saying it was too close to call. What a spectacular year it has been for KU athletics. I’m glad I got the chance to be in Lawrence to listen to the festivities erupt from the comfort of my couch. I’m too old to run down the middle of the street now, but I’m glad there were 40,000 others that weren’t! Rock Chalk Jayhawk, go KU!
