According to my count, major figures of the Bush administration knowingly lied to the U.S. people around 15 times on this one issue alone. Is this what the Republi-cons were talking about when they said they were going to bring "moral leadership" to the Whitehouse? These people should all be impeached and then hung from their toes in Abu Ghraib prison.
