Good idea for a thread. I approve.
The only problem is; threads with loads of vids take a long time to load and mess with my computer. If we try to post every instance of government officials blatantly lying to us, it won't be long before we crash the ATS servers.
If we look for government lying videos, we'll probably be able to find AT LEAST 10 new ones every day of the week. It seems like those tools we put in office just cant stop lying to us. I think they believe its part of their job description.
It would be a lot easier to list anything that a politician said that was the whole truth. Ok, so I would have an empty list. I'm a little lazy.
6. President Barack Obama lying about how he will close Guantanamo, and make sure no-one is tortured.
He tried to close it and still does. The House of representatives is Republican-controlled and none of the previous votes passed, whatever he tried. Also some democrats are against closing it.
At the end you need to have the votes passed to close it. If the House is blocking the attempts, there is not much the President can do without being a dictator and getting extremely negative attention on the matter.
But I see statement as if he lied, as false, as he tried, but the other party, who had majority of votes was blocking it.
