As in the recent disclosures on Iran’s nuclear weapons program, Decider George has been lying out of his ass for a long time. Probably once he discovered Santa Claus was a lie, he understood the need to continue the effort.
- Asked if an inquiry would be held after British troops withdraw, David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, replied: “I am obsessed with the next five years in Iraq. And I think the best ‘inquiry’ is putting the best brains to think about how to make sure the next five years in Iraq get that combination of political reconstruction, economic reconstruction and security improvements that are so essential.”

Although it’s been reported the Brits would launch an investigation into what made the UK follow Decider George into the inferno of Iraq, UK head Gordon Brown has backpedaled.
The Brits have moved this month from a fighting force to a support force. The UK has now about 9,500 troops in Iraq, mostly in the south and that total is supposed to be down to about 2,500 by this spring.
Decider George flunkie Tony Blair can sleep better (and as new Catholic, to boot!) now that the ugly mess of the Downing Street memo, other tibits of UK intel failures and the whole sordid mess would be eventually swept under the rug. Shades of Vietnam: No Being Accountable.
And if the UK don’t want to truth be told about Iraq, what about the US? The first half of the “Senate Report of Pre-War Intelligence on Iraq” was released in July 2004 by the US Senate Intelligence Committee. Pretty quick as the invasion was only a year earlier.
Now much later in the story, there’s still nothing about Decider George, his VP, Dufus Dick Chaney, and a retarded, but bloodthirsty host of others, who cooked the books.
- “While it’s perfectly legitimate to criticize my decision or the conduct of the war, it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began.”
— Decider George, Veterans’ Day speech, 2005
Rewrite history? We don’t think so. What the US peoples demand is the truth. Not a lying curveball.
