What a Tangled Web

While we wait to see what the results of today’s voting are, I’m playing catch-up on the various email updates I get from some of my favorite sites. David Corn, the man who originally brought the Plame leak to our attention (even if it took the mainstream media several weeks to catch up) has a wonderful analysis of the lies that are catching up with the Bush White House.

The Spin is Not Holding:

Reality check: Bush had said that the main reason to go to war was because Hussein possessed "massive" stockpiles of unconventional weapons and at any moment could hand them off to al Qaeda (with whom Bush claimed Hussein was "dealing"–even though the evidence on that point was and continues to be, at best, sketchy). Now Bush is asserting that Hussein was a threat that could only be countered with invasion and occupations because he had weapons research programs that indeed violated United Nations resolutions but that had not produced any weapons. That’s a much different argument. Bush, Cheney, McClellan, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell and others continue to deny they overstated (or misrepresented) the case for war. But the evidence is incontrovertible, and it keeps on piling up.

More evidence of the Perfect Storm to blow these guys out of Washington…we hope.
