Iraq – Wash, Rinse, Repeat the Lies – Iran - Page 2
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld: “We know that they have weapons of mass destruction … There isn't any debate about it … Beyond anyone's imagination that U.N. Inspectors would fail to find such weapons if they were given the opportunity.” September 2002.
Secretary of State Colin Powell: “I'm absolutely sure that there are weapons of mass destruction there, and the evidence will be forthcoming.” remarks to reporters May 4, 2003.
Vice President Dick Cheney: “We do know, with absolute certainty, that he is using his procurement system to acquire the equipment he needs in order to enrich uranium to build a nuclear weapon.” NBC's “Meet the Press” September 6, 2002.
These statements were all lies told by our leaders.
So today, as a United States aircraft carrier approaches Iranian shores, the United States is going to launch lies before the war begins. Whether it's lies of the proportion of the Gulf of Tonkin that Iran attacked an aircraft carrier or lies of the proportion that Iran is building a nuclear bomb in 6 months, it's just the same washing, rinsing and repeating of successful past lies. Butnow it's President Obama's turn to lie.
