Lies! Lies! & More Lies! And then there Was Iran!

Lies, Lies, Lies
Bush, Iraq, and Iran
The Bush Administration, members of
Congress from both parties, and the corporate
media are engaged in a campaign of demonization
against the people of Iran.
The media is filled with reports of an alleged
nuclear threat posed by Iran and the assumed
need for the U.S. to take military action. These
reports recall the "Weapons of Mass
Destruction" stories issued in the months
leading up to the war on Iraq.
In order to put the Administration’s statements
about Iran in context, it is helpful to review its
claims about Iraq:
“Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam
Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction.”
-Dick Cheney, August 26, 2002
“Right now, Iraq is expanding and improving
facilities that were used for the production of
biological weapons.” -George W. Bush,
September 12, 2002
“Iraq has stockpiled biological and chemical
weapons, and is rebuilding the facilities used to
make more of those weapons...We have sources
that tell us that Saddam Hussein recently
authorized Iraqi field commanders to use
chemical weapons -- the very weapons the
dictator tells us he does not have.” -George W.
Bush, October 5, 2002
"Our intelligence officials estimate that
Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce
as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX
nerve agent.” -President George W. Bush -
State of the Union Address – 1/28/2003
“U.S. intelligence indicates that Saddam
Hussein had upwards of 30,000 munitions
capable of delivering chemical agents.” -
President George W. Bush - State of the Union
Address – 1/28/2003
“We have also discovered through intelligence
that Iraq has a growing fleet of manned and
unmanned aerial vehicles that could be used to
disperse chemical or biological weapons across
broad areas." -President George W. Bush - State
of the Union Address – 1/28/2003
"Our intelligence sources tell us that he
(Saddam) has attempted to purchase highstrength
aluminum tubes suitable for nuclear
weapons production." -President George W.
Bush - State of the Union Address – 1/28/2003
"The British government has learned that
Saddam Hussein recently sought significant
quantities of uranium from Africa." -President
George W. Bush - State of the Union Address –
1/28/2003
“We have sources that tell us that Saddam
Hussein recently authorized Iraqi field
commanders to use chemical weapons -- the
very weapons the dictator tells us he does not
have.” -George W. Bush- 2/8/2003
"We know he's been absolutely devoted to
trying to acquire nuclear weapons, and we
believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear
weapons." -Dick Cheney – “Meet the Press”
3/16/2003
“We know where they are. They're in the area
around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west,
south and north somewhat.” -Donald
Rumsfeld, 3/30/2003
“He tried to fool the United Nations and did for
12 years by hiding these weapons. And so, it's
going to take time to find them. But we know
he had them, and whether he destroyed them,
moved them or hid them, we're going to find
out the truth.” -George W. Bush 4/25/2003
Now they’re recycling the same material to
justify aggression against the people of Iran.
