Bush decries "revisionist historians", isn't looking in mirror
In one of the most hilarious moments of the Bush presidency, Dubya blasted "revisionist historians" with apparently no sense of irony.
However, in another sign that the WMD rationale is nearly exhausted, Bush did not mention the word once in his defense of the war. Rather, he said:
Referring to the ousted Iraqi president, Bush said, "Saddam Hussein was a threat to America and the free world in '91, in '98, in 2003. He continually ignored the demands of the free world, so the United States and friends and allies acted."Of course, the question is still, "WHY was he a threat?" He can say "threat, threat, threat" until he's blue in the face. Fact is, you have to back up such assertions.
Given that reality didn't back up his "threat" assessment, Bush and his cabal invented one -- WMDs. The LIES continue to be exposed.
And no amount of revisionism will rescue Bush from the truth.Posted June 17, 2003 12:44 AM | Comments (84)
