How Bush and the NeoCons Lied America Into the Iraq War


This video does a good job of summing up the blatant, outrageous lies that George W. Bush and the NeoCons told in leading America into the $3 trillion Iraq War fiasco, which has led to the deaths of over 1 million Iraqi men, women and children.

Clinton lied about a blowjob and he was impeached for it.
By contrast, Bush and his NeoCon cronies have never faced any consequences for lying us into a disastrous war.
In fact, I think the future is bright for Bush, Cheney, etc.
They can look forward to a lucrative post-White House career.
The 25-percenters still adore Bush and Cheney. They'll gladly shell out big bucks to buy their books and listen to their speeches.
Bush will likely command at least $200,000 per speech. If he gives four speeches a month, that amounts to nearly $10 million a year. Nice "work" if you can get it.

Interesting, how much they still try to deny what they've done, even in the face of all the evidence on tape.

I've read several articles today (one especially over on "After Downing Street") that are talking about the possibility of filing criminal charges against Bush, Cheney and some of the others once they are out of power. I think that's a possibility. There is speculation that if the Dems hold on to (or increase) their majority in Congress, they may be inclined to appoint a special prosecutor.

Putting a former president and VP on trial for murder (as suggested by Vincent Bugliosi's book) would be a first for this country, and a huge step toward re-establishing freedom and democracy in our country. No question that John McCain would do a "Ford" and pardon both of them before such an investigation and charges could get a toe-hold, but I doubt that Obama would be willing to do it.
