cheney’s claims on rush limbaugh, yesterday. . .

have been directly contradicted
by today’s washington post, los
angeles times, and the new york
times — all citing to newly declassified
defense department documents:

. . .Captured Iraqi documents
and intelligence interrogations
of Saddam Hussein and two former
aides “all confirmed” that Hussein’s
regime was not directly cooperating
with al-Qaeda
before the U.S.
invasion of Iraq, according to a
declassified Defense Department
report released yesterday. . .”


perhaps the most frustrating
aspect of these lies is that
mr. cheney insists on
continuing to tell them
.

and he tells them long after the
sentient world has accepted that
they are without substantial
basis in fact — all to the
damage of the reputations of
good, hard-working intelligence
officials at the central
intelligence agency.

astonishing. or perhaps, not so.
