Mother Davis begins counting on her fingers as she relates,
On December 31, 2007, we here at Irregular Times finished compiling our list of 2,008 reasons to elect a progressive President. What we could not have known at the time is that the Center for Public Integrity was compiling its own list – a list of all the lies the Bush Administration told in order to convince Americans that we had no choice but to invade and occupy Iraq.
They went back through White House press releases, news reports, congressional testimony and other sources and found not just one, not just ten, not just one hundred, but 935 times the Bush Administration lied about the national security threat posed by Iraq and Saddam Hussein.
If we had been in the mood to take a shortcut, the Center for Public Integrity’s list could have reduced our workload by almost half.
Goodness me, but you’ve got to work hard to lie that much.
