It isn’t so blatant as to say the administration lied.
Instead, a comprehensive study released last week describes 935 false statements made by President Bush and top officials as they made a case for invading Iraq as “an orchestrated deception.”
The War Card, a 1,400-page database released last week by the independent nonprofits Center for Public Integrity and Fund for Independence in Journalism, documented “every single public utterance by the top eight Bush administration officials from Sept. 11, 2001 to Sept. 11, 2003, regarding Iraq’s possession of weapons of mass destruction and also Iraq’s links to Al Qaeda,” said Fund President Charles Lewis.
