Stephen Hadley, Shrub's National Security Advisor, now says that while "we were wrong," there was no attempt to manipulate intelligence going into Shrub's War. This must be getting hard to say with a straight face. There is, at this point, an entire army of ex-CIA types, diplomats, and top military brass who were directly involved with the war who say that Hadley's statement holds about as much water as Shrub's shot glass. If there's anyone out there who has been lost in the Alaskan wilderness for the last 3 or 4 years and hasn't had to listen to expert after expert, and read document after document, attesting to Shrub's lies leading up to war, I'd suggest that they get the documentary Uncovered: The War on Iraq. And then try to explain how we lefties somehow managed to convince virtually everyone who was in a place to know anything about the lead up to the war (people who are probably 99% Republican conservatives) to "lie" about the lead-up to the war and repeat our "vicious unpatriotic Islamo-fascist-commie propaganda." You can't figure it out can you? We actually hypnotized them with our demonic lefty-ray. (The whole plot can be "uncovered" if you look at some old episodes of Get Smart.) Waa-haa-haaaaa.
