The Center for public integrity had compiled a database and timeline of 935 false statements on the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and on the links between Iraq and Al Qaeda.

How to search the false statements: Click on an individual's photo to see their timeline of false statements, and read the actual statements below.

Top of the list Bush himself with 260 lies.

This is just one of his at the 85th American Legion convention


We've also pursued the war on terror in Iraq. America and our coalition removed a regime that built, possessed and used weapons of mass destruction, a regime that sponsored terror and a regime that persecuted its people. Our military coalition destroyed the Iraqi regime, while taking extraordinary measures to spare innocent life. (Applause.) The battle of Iraq was conducted with the skill and honor of a great military, the United States Armed Forces. (Applause.)

Because of our military, catastrophic weapons will no longer be in the hands of a reckless, unstable dictator. Because of our military, Middle Eastern countries no longer fear subversion and attack by Saddam Hussein. Because of our military, Iraq will no longer be a source of funding for suicide bombers in the Middle East. Because of our men and women in uniform, the torture chambers in Iraq are closed, the prison cells for children are empty and the people who speak their minds need not fear execution. (Applause.)

In all the debates over Iraq, we must never forget

Iraq. We must never forget the brutal nature of the regime of Saddam Hussein. Mass grave sites, literally thousands of people buried in mass grave sites were recently discovered by our troops. They contain the remains not only of executed men and women, but of executed children, as well

I thought some of you would enjoy looking through the database.

Bush administration 'lies' eh ?

I guess some people never bothered to read the Iraq war resolution.



The resolution cited many factors to justify the use of military force against Iraq:[2][3] Iraq's noncompliance with the conditions of the 1991 ceasefire agreement, including interference with U.N. weapons inspectors. Iraq "continuing to possess and develop a significant chemical and biological weapons capability" and "actively seeking a nuclear weapons capability" posed a "threat to the national security of the United States and international peace and security in the Persian Gulf region." Iraq's "brutal repression of its civilian population." Iraq's "capability and willingness to use weapons of mass destruction against other nations and its own people". Iraq's hostility towards the United States as demonstrated by the 1993 assassination attempt on former President George H. W. Bush and firing on coalition aircraft enforcing the no-fly zones following the 1991 Gulf War. Members of al-Qaeda, an organization bearing responsibility for attacks on the United States, its citizens, and interests, including the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, are known to be in Iraq. Iraq's "continu[ing] to aid and harbor other international terrorist organizations," including anti-United States terrorist organizations. Iraq paid bounty to families of suicide bombers. The efforts by the Congress and the President to fight terrorists, and those who aided or harbored them. The authorization by the Constitution and the Congress for the President to fight anti-United States terrorism. The governments in Turkey, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia feared Saddam and wanted him removed from power. Citing the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, the resolution reiterated that it should be the policy of the United States to remove the Saddam Hussein regime and promote a democratic replacement. The resolution "supported" and "encouraged" diplomatic efforts by President George W. Bush to "strictly enforce through the U.N. Security Council all relevant Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq" and "obtain prompt and decisive action by the Security Council to ensure that Iraq abandons its strategy of delay, evasion, and noncompliance and promptly and strictly complies with all relevant Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq." The resolution authorized President Bush to use the Armed Forces of the United States "as he determines to be necessary and appropriate" in order to "defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq; and enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions regarding Iraq."

GW didn't write that by the way congress did.

For a lie it sure had some willing 'accomplices'.

Case in point:



Doesn't it get tired ?

Of rehashing a 13 year old 'argument' .

Never mind already know the answer to that.

Just for snips and giggles:

US did find Iraq WMD

Watch this hand (Bush) closely... While this hand (Obama) continues to use his pen and his phone.

Don't look away or you'll miss the trick...

How many of them are treason, since US citizens died based on them? (not to underestimate the grotesque carnage overseas).

When the hell are we going to do to these people what they so richly deserve?

Why are we still harboring war criminals and treating them like elder statesmen?

It's scary how fast you come to the defense of Bush & friends.

It's not surprising how you turn it around on Obama & friends.

I support neither & it's scary how many stars you may receive for your pro Bush post.

People still support Bush? That's crazy.

Want to try again ?

Just giving credit where it's due.

Instead of the nonstop demagoguery of it 'Bush's fault'.

Even more credit to the current vpotus who voted YEA on the Iraq war resolution.

Here is some more credit that both secretary's of state also voted YEA on the Iraq war resolution.

So I sorry was there a point there ?

here's a neat article....

Seems the Democrats of the day had access to the very same information as Bush and the Republicans.

Some even pressed the button just as hard despite warnings from credible sources at the time.

Looks like a lot of people "Banked" on the concepts


The pictures in that database need to be updated



Democrats Share the Blame for Tragedy of Iraq War

It's work in "progress" as they say.

The problem isn't getting the 25,000 lies compiled, it's getting the 300 pictures aligned with the names.

GW was a better potus than what we current got.

True that isn't saying that much, but at least his approval rating is higher than the current blamer in chief.

the most impressive thing is that Dick Cheney is one of the more honest ones among them. only 48!
sorry it's just sad to see the one i hate the most is also the most "honest" one out of the bunch.
The world has gone officially crazy.
on the bright side itś nice to see that will all this evidence finally the government has decided to open an investigation and punish these people for their lies.
...oh, my bad, wrong reality.
