Bush didn’t lie

For the past 5 years the Left’s mantra on Iraq has been that “Bush lied and people died.” This rallying cry grew out of Joe Wilson’s op-ed piece in the New York Times in which he clearly declared that Iraq was not pursuing the purchase of raw nuclear material. This led to the Robert Novak/Valerie Plame/Dick Cheney affair which ended up with “Scooter” Libby’s prosecution. You can read a good summary here.

Well, since “we all know” that Bush has been “so thoroughly discredited on the WMD issue”, I thought you might be interested in learning that Iraq really did have an ongoing nuclear program. In 2003, our troops found a HUGE amount or raw nuclear material.

However, President Bush has been willing to endure public humiliation and defamation for the past 5 years to prevent this discovery from becoming known to any terrorists. That is unselfish maturity. The uranium has been sold and secretly delivered to a Canadian company.

Did you notice when this operation was completed? Did you hear anything about this? I wonder why?

Maybe the broadcast media didn’t think that this was a big news item? Just like the San Francisco Chronicle didn’t think that a certain candidate for the Presidency planned to bankrupt the coal industry was important news to their readers.

Just thought you might be interested in a little truth.

Would that be called a lie?

If the media reports that a certain ministry has refused to respond to Senator Grassley’s “request for information,” and it turns out that ministry actually sent the good Senator a 3 page cover letter, a 23 page single-spaced response to every question, provided 291 pages of exhibits and formally REQUESTED that the IRS audit their books, would that be called a lie?
