The Administrations Misleading Public Statement on Iraq

Posted by nytexan on April 27, 2007

I ran across this very interesting web site Bush on Iraq, The Bush Administrations Misleading and Inaccurate Public Statement on Iraq. The site draws all its information from a report prepared at the request of Rep. Henry A. Waxman in 2004 “Iraq On The Record” . The report deals with the misleading statements made by Bush, Cheney, Powell, Rumsfeld and Rice.

The web site breaks down each statement by person and gives the reason for why it’s misleading. Or you could have the pleasure of reading all 36 pages yourself of Waxman’s report.

From Their Website:

Number of Misleading Statements. The Iraq on the Record database contains 237 misleading statements about the threat posed by Iraq that were made by President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Secretary Rumsfeld, Secretary Powell, and National Security Advisor Rice. These statements were made in 125 separate appearances, consisting of 40 speeches, 26 press conferences and briefings, 53 interviews, 4 written statements, and 2 congressional testimonies. Most of the statements in the database were misleading because they expressed certainty where none existed or failed to acknowledge the doubts of intelligence officials. Ten of the statements were simply false.

Waxman has been very busy gathering information the last few years. The report looks very strong for impeachment and treason.
