Bush & His Adjusting Lies

As many have stated over and over again, the policy on Iraq has changed over time. The following quotes represent the shifts in strategies by the Bush administration as their lies are exposed.


"Our mission is clear in Iraq. Should we have to go in, our mission is very clear: disarmament."
- Bush, March 6, 2003

"In Iraq today, our military is focused and unwavering. We have an effective plan of battle and the flexibility to meet every challenge. Nothing--nothing--will divert us from our clear mission."

- Bush, March 26, 2003

"Our forces have been given a clear mission--to end a regime that threatened its neighbors and the world with weapons of mass destruction, and to free a people that had suffered far too long."

- Bush, April 14, 2003

"Our coalition has a clear goal, understood by all--to see the Iraqi people in charge for the first time in generations."

- Bush, May 24, 2004

"Well, as I stated earlier, the clear mission of the multinational force, and in particular, the United States military is to help the new Iraqi government stabilize a country, deal with the security threat, and help improve the lives of the Iraqi people."

- "Senior Administration Official", June 28, 2004

"The United States military and our coalition partners have made a clear, specific and continuing mission in Iraq. As we train Iraqi security forces, we'll help those forces to find and destroy the killers."

- Bush, June 28, 2004

"Some of tomorrow's veterans are in combat in Iraq at this hour. They have a clear mission: to defeat the terrorists and aid the rise of a free government that can defend itself."

- Bush, November 11, 2004

"And our mission is clear there, as well, and that is to train the Iraqis so they can do the fighting; make sure they can stand up to defend their freedoms, which they want to do."

- Bush, June 2, 2005

"Our goal is clear: a democratic and peaceful Iraq that represents all Iraqis."

- Bush, June 24, 2005

"Our military strategy is clear: We will train Iraqi security forces so they can defend their freedom and protect their people, and then our troops will return home with the honor they have earned."

- Bush, June 25, 2005

"Our mission in Iraq is clear: We're hunting down the terrorists. We're helping Iraqis build a free nation that is an ally in the war on terror. We're advancing freedom in the broader Middle East. We are removing a source of violence and instability and laying the foundation of peace for our children and our grandchildren."

- Bush, June 28, 2005

    He's ridiculous. I can't believe we voted him into office (well, not me personally) for ANOTHER TERM of lies.
  2. Cynthia Says:
    Lies, lies, & mo lies. It amazing that some people still believe in him.
  3. Church Secretary Says:
    Hello, James. Nice joint.

    There is a reason I put Galatians 6:7 at the head of my weblog. It is the simplest, most eloquent warning that a loving God could give to his wayward children.

    Consider the following quote, from Alan Coren: "Democracy consists of choosing your dictators, after they've told you what you think it is you want to hear."

    Bush is in power because the majority either wants him there, or doesn't want to sacrifice what it must in order to throw his cabal out. In 2000, the people of Bolivia marched on their government to demand that it tear up a brutally feudal contract that had handed over control of the country's water supply to a subsidiary of perennial corporate vampire Bechtel. After enduring the expected wave of state violence, the people got what they wanted. The contract was torn up.

    Now, if the masses in Bolivia could rise up over something so important, why aren't U.S. citizens marching in the streets over the imperial abuses of our tax dollars and our military?

    I, for one, am guilty of letting my government get away with theft and murder.
