Lies, Lies, Lies

Imagine....the Bush administration has been lying to us again! A few days ago, unnamed sources gave a dog and pony show to the press to demonstrate how evil Iran was and how involved they were in the mess in Iraq:
At a briefing Sunday in Baghdad, U.S. military officials said the al-Quds Force, an elite Iranian paramilitary organization, is sending arms into Iraq that include bombs that shoot molten metal jets through the armor of American tanks and Humvees.

They said these "explosively formed projectiles," or EFPs, have killed 170 U.S. troops and wounded more than 600 others and are "coming from the highest level of the Iranian government.
The right got its collective panties in a twist and helped beat the drums of war.

And then yesterday we learned that it wasn't actually so!
A day after the U.S. military charged Iran's government with shipping powerful explosive devices to Shiite Muslim fighters in Iraq to use against American troops, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Monday that he hasn't seen any intelligence to support the claim.

Marine Gen. Peter Pace's comment could make it harder for the Bush administration, its credibility about Iran questioned because of its false pre-war claims about Saddam Hussein, to make its case that Iranian meddling in Iraq is fueling sectarian violence and causing U.S. casualties.
The American people have had enough of Bush's lies; they demonstrated this in November. And now the military has had enough of Bush's lies as well.

As a fool once said, "Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice.......won't get fooled again!"
