A Great Big Lie

One lie that George Bush and his followers have been spouting for the last four years is that the war in Iraq was making us safer. Prior to the war, a number of experts warned us that this war would further enrage segments of the population. European nations warned us that this would lead to the development of more terrorist. Only the Bush administration argued that this invasion would lead to a decline in terror.

Over the last few years, this has been the position of every report that has been published by experts not politically aligned with the Bush administration. Despite this the Bush administration has stayed on point, the war on Iraq is making us safer.

A new National intelligence Estimate has made it clear, the invasion of Iraq has made America less safe.

It concludes that, rather than contributing to eventual victory in the global counterterrorism struggle, the situation in Iraq has worsened the U.S. position, according to officials familiar with the classified document.

Here is where the big lie comes in. This report was finished in April. All sixteen agencies involved in producing intelligence for the US participated in and approved of the reports. It appears to make is quite clear that the war has been a true boon for Islamic terror groups world wide.

Yet, our President, and his echoing minions, kept claiming that this war has made America safer. Even now, with the news of this 6 month old report leaking out, they are busy with their spin, hoping that no one will notice that, even when their own intelligence service told them one thing, they continued to lie to the people of the US.

And, I bet the media will let them.
