Another Bush Lie Exposed

Of course this is one that everyone should know was a lie.

He and his people have been bleating that Democrats in the House and Senate had the same intelligence that he did. That was clearly untrue, just on the basis of how the intelligence apparatus is structured.

Bush runs the administration. They are the ones who produce the intelligence that is presented to the congress. Bush's administration had access to all the data, they then selected what to present to congress.

So based on operational structure alone, the statement about having the same information was clearly a lie. Now more evidence is coming out that confirms this.

A congressional report made public yesterday concluded that President Bush and his inner circle had access to more intelligence and reviewed more sensitive material than what was shared with Congress when it gave Bush the authority to wage war against Iraq.

Democrats said the 14-page report contradicts Bush's contention that lawmakers saw all the evidence before U.S. troops invaded in March 2003, stating that the president and a small number of advisers "have access to a far greater volume of intelligence and to more sensitive intelligence information."

Like the old joke goes: How can you tell when Bush is lying?

His lips are moving.
