A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Bringing Shame to the Grand Old Party-Justifying Treason and The Politics of Personal Destruction 

“The British government has learned (and then told us) that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.” GWB State of the Union Speech

“In February 2002, I was informed by officials at the Central Intelligence Agency that Vice President Dick Cheney's office had questions about a particular intelligence report. While I never saw the report, I was told that it referred to a memorandum of agreement that documented the sale of uranium yellowcake — a form of lightly processed ore — by Niger to Iraq in the late 1990's.” What I Didn’t Find in Africa – Joseph Wilson

I’m no linguistic genius, but aren’t both of these statements essentially using the same caveat? That is, I heard this and now I’m repeating it.

Lindsey Graham said today on Face the Nation the only plausible interpretation of Wilson’s statement was that Wilson was claiming Dick Cheney had personally sent him to Niger. This canard is designed to challenge Wilson’s credibility. Graham has to know this is demonstrably false. Then again, Graham is the same idiot who said that Clinton making a phone call at a particular hour of the day was proof that something sinister was going on.

Graham also said the personal attacks by the White House on Wilson were justified because they were just defending themselves. I certainly hope someone is keeping a chronology of all the lies by the GOP to justify treason. These people are a national disgrace.
