Daily Mislead

President Bush's decision to attack Saddam Hussein was made within days after the September 11th suicide hijackings, even though Bush claimed on the eve of his invasion 'the American people can know that every measure has been taken to avoid war.'

Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz has acknowledged that in the first weekend after September 11th 'the disagreement was whether [invading Iraq] should be in the immediate response or whether you should concentrate simply on Afghanistan first.'

No-one would ever believe such a disgraceful allegation, if only the Bush administration showed some slight capacity for veracity.
