Someone Lied

I'm going to have quite a bit of fun over the next week, digging up all of the 'Bush Lied' quotes from the last three years.

The United States has found 500 chemical weapons in Iraq since 2003, and more weapons of mass destruction are likely to be uncovered, two Republican lawmakers said Wednesday.

Report: Hundreds of WMDs Found in Iraq

Reading from a declassified portion of a report by the National Ground Intelligence Center, a Defense Department intelligence unit, Santorum said: "Since 2003, coalition forces have recovered approximately 500 weapons munitions which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent. Despite many efforts to locate and destroy Iraq's pre-Gulf War chemical munitions, filled and unfilled pre-Gulf War chemical munitions are assessed to still exist."

I want an apology. I want all of the trolls to come out and admit they were wrong. I want everyone who ever uttered the words…’Bush Lied’, to eat those words. I will not put this graciously. You were wrong and you damaged our security. You put your political agenda in front of national security, and you were wrong. You put your hatred for Bush and your anger at losing an election before your nation’s interest.

"This says weapons have been discovered, more weapons exist and they state that Iraq was not a WMD-free zone, that there are continuing threats from the materials that are or may still be in Iraq," said Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

Colin Powell, call your office. You can come out now.

The weapons are thought to be manufactured before 1991 so they would not be proof of an ongoing WMD program in the 1990s. But they do show that Saddam Hussein was lying when he said all weapons had been destroyed, and it shows that years of on-again, off-again weapons inspections did not uncover these munitions.

Hans Blix, you should be beaten with a wet noodle. France, please drop into the ocean.

"This does not reflect a capacity that was built up after 1991," the official said, adding the munitions "are not the WMDs this country and the rest of the world believed Iraq had, and not the WMDs for which this country went to war."

But it does show that the UN is incompetent and that the weapons inspections were not working.

Santorum pointed out that during Wednesday's debate, several Senate Democrats said that no weapons of mass destruction had been found in Iraq, a claim, he said, that the declassified document proves is untrue.

"This is an incredibly — in my mind — significant finding. The idea that, as my colleagues have repeatedly said in this debate on the other side of the aisle, that there are no weapons of mass destruction, is in fact false," he said.

Kerry Lied, Dean Lied, Reid Lied, Pelosi Lied! They should all resign. Murtha, Durbin, Boxer, you are liars by your own standards. Step down. You have no business running a country.
