Well we all know what we’re supposed to think about those U.N. weapons inspectors, don’t we? Not to be taken seriously. Surely not as seriously as the first 18 “pundits” in this Rogues Gallery.
U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell referred to the documents directly in his presentation to the U.N. Security Council outlining the Bush administration’s case against Iraq.”
Meaning that he was obviously lying.
Oh surely not. They’ve lied before and they’ll lie again. That’s their job.
In other words: “The dog ate my homework and then he lied about it.”
See/ It’s “fine” if we promulgate “inaccurate”information.
And therefore, until they’re “resolved” we’ll lie about them.
CNN asks. But they weren’t “missed” at all. They were deliberately embraced.
Whereas the real question is why CNN believes everything the U.S. government tells it — in spite of its long and well-documented history of lying.
Another, written on paper from a 1980s military government in Niger, bears the date of October 2000 and the signature of a man who by then had not been foreign minister of Niger in 14 years, sources said.”
Close said the CIA should have known better.
“They have tremendously sophisticated and experienced people in their technical services division, who wouldn’t allow a forgery like this to get by,” Close said. “I mean it’s just mystifying to me. I can’t understand it.”
It’s mystifying that you can’t understand it. The cornerstone of the U.S. propaganda campaign is that Saddam Hussein has nuclear weapons that threaten the U.S. Since this isn’t true such reports must be manufactured.
If a mistake was made, a U.S. official suggested, it was more likely due to incompetence not malice.”
But there’s nothing incompetent about it. “Saddam Has the Bomb!” was inserted into the news cycle. That this isn’t the case matters little as the job of inserting this lie was done — and recieved infinitely more coverage than the truth.
Close would be advised to watch his back.
But the question remains — who is responsible for the apparent forgeries?”
We’re on the edge of our seats!
What “experts”? The ones referenced above?
Yet these “unconvincing” forgeries were ‘convincing” enough for Colin Powell to recite them as true.
Clutch the pearls! Why didn’t somebody stop him? After all, these forgeries were “obvious”!
U.S. officials said that the assertion by the president and British government was also based on additional evidence of Iraqi efforts to obtain uranium from another African country. But officials would not say which nation and a knowledgable U.S. official said that there was not much to that evidence either
So who forged the uranium story?
Must have been Scott Ritter and Janeane Garafolo.
Yeah, that’s the ticket!
