Spot the lie

This is totally stolen from Slate's Chatterbox:

This administration never said that the 9/11 attacks were orchestrated between Saddam and al Qaeda.
—President Bush, in an exchange with reporters, June 17, 2004

[A]cting pursuant to the Constitution and [the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002] is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001.
—President Bush, in a letter to Congress outlining the legal justification for commencing war against Iraq, March 18, 2003

I wish there was some way that as you read these quotes, I could play that Henry Rollins song where he just yells "LIAR!" a lot.

Because, see, Bush lied. The people in his administration lie. And people are dying because of it. Hell, Cheney is still trying to connect Saddam Hussein, 9/11 and al-Qaeda.

Vote Kerry!
