Bush...Big Brother...Big Liar....

"Big Brother in the form of an increasingly powerful government and in an increasingly powerful private sector will pile the records high with reasons why privacy should give way to national security, to law and order, to efficiency of operation, to scientific advancement and the like." Justice William O. Douglas - (1898-1980), Democrat, U. S. Supreme Court Justice - Source: Points of Rebellion, 1969.

Who would have thought that the late 60s and early 70s would repeat itself? And, yet the lies, the turmoil, the death, and destruction has repeated itself.

"We have found the weapons of mass destruction," Bush told America to justify the mass killings in Iraq. "We found biological laboratories." However, The Washington Post reports, as a result of a secret fact-finding mission, Bush knew his claim was a lie:

“A secret fact-finding mission to Iraq -- not made public until now -- had already concluded that the trailers had nothing to do with biological weapons. Leaders of the Pentagon-sponsored mission transmitted their unanimous findings to Washington in a field report on May 27, 2003, two days before the president's statement.”

The fact-finding mission was composed of “nine U.S. and British civilian experts -- scientists and engineers with extensive experience in all the technical fields involved in making bioweapons. The taskforce was “dispatched to Baghdad by the Defense Intelligence Agency for an analysis of the trailers.”
