To prove that Bush (or anyone else, for that matter) lied about anything you'd have to show beyond a reasonable doubt that, knowing the truth, he deliberately said something else. Not "he reported what he was told" or "to the best of his knowledge" but "he knew this and said just the opposite."

More, he depends upon what information he is given. If a subordinate lies to the boss and provides false data to support the lie, is the boss guilty of lying? If the subordinate withholds relevant data and the boss acts upon the data he has, does the boss lie?

I'm not a big Bush supporter or fan, but I think that these distinctions are important. Bush doesn't do his own research and I think that he places too much trust in his advisors. I think that he doesn't demonstrate healthy skepticism. But then this is the case with politicians everywhere....

Bush is afflicted with a sort of tunnel-vision that makes his world-view quite narrow. A person afflicted with tunnel-vision isn't lying if he simply doesn't see things that are outside his narrow visual range. However, other people who know about his affliction have a responsibility to point things out to him when he misses them. In Bush's case, there seems to be nobody performing that function. On the contrary, his advisors seem to suffer from the same disease.

Bush and his mouthpieces repeatedly and deliberately asserted there were WMDs in Iraq and a significant threat of a nuclear strike by Saddam Hussein. In addition they repeatedly and deliberately conflated Iraq with the 9-11 attacks making it appear that Iraq had participated in those attacks, by multiple and intentional insinuation as well as a small number of direct false statements.

What proof are you looking for? Both these propositions were hollow.

Anyway, what does it matter if he lied? The fact that his assertions were wrong (i.e. no WMDs, not collaboration between Saddam and Al Qaeda), for whatever reason, prove his and his administration's incompetence - and that's enough to see anybody off the job, right? Especially when the advocated course of action has resulted in the destabilisation of a nation and possibly a whole region, and the loss of so much life. This is a serious failure on the job, right? Not your usual "whoopsie-daisy, made a mistake there, folks, I'll be more careful next time"...

Oh, and by the way he ALSO lied about the effort of the Hussein government to buy uranium from Niger.

I suggest, for example, the documented lists of intentional falsifications enumerated in Al Franken's "The Truth -- with jokes", which covers this territory nicely. Or either of the "Views of the Bush Administration" threads which have captured hundreds of instances, I expect (I didn't count them).

Him personally? None.

That the US and UK governments as a whole lied? Plenty. At the time, the security services provided the information that there were no WMDs, no risk of nuclear attack from Hussein, no link between Hussein and al-Qaeda, and there's masses of evidence that this information was provided. Whoever intervened to ensure that Bush presented a lie to the US (and ditto for the UK government) doesn't really matter - call it corporate responsibility.

If the US and UK governments were corporations and their cabinets were the boards of directors, every last one of them would be axed as a result of that kind of lie to the people who put them there to run things effectively.

Bush's "16 Words" on Iraq & Uranium: He May Have Been Wrong But He Wasn't Lying

* A British intelligence review released July 14 calls Bush's 16 words "well founded."
    * A separate report by the US Senate Intelligence Committee said July 7 that the US also had similar information from "a number of intelligence reports," a fact that was classified at the time Bush spoke.
    * Ironically, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who later called Bush's 16 words a "lie", supplied information that the Central Intelligence Agency took as confirmation that Iraq may indeed have been seeking uranium from Niger .
    * Both the US and British investigations make clear that some forged Italian documents, exposed as fakes soon after Bush spoke, were not the basis for the British intelligence Bush cited, or the CIA's conclusion that Iraq was trying to get uranium.

"At the time, the security services provided the information that there were no WMDs"

Who? Where? And when? At the time the only information relating to what Iraq was thought to have was contained in the UNSCOM Report presented to the UN Security Council in January 1999.

Going back over Dr Hans Blix's last report to the UN Security Council after the UNMOVIC Inspection Teams had left Iraq in March 2003, even then he stated that he could no categoric assurance that Iraq did not hold any WMD, or that programmes relating to WMD had been abandoned.

What you are looking at is not the intelligence itself but the evaluation of that intelligence. Post-911, as far as the US was concerned it was always going to be the "worst case scenario" that would be advocated as the case for action.

Nobody lied, nobody acted in anything other than good faith, irrespective of how much some people on this forum would wish it otherwise.

1. The president (or his handler - Rumsfeld, Cheney, Blair...) decides what "the truth" needs to be.
2. He makes sure underlings in "intelligence" know what is wanted of them.
3. "Intelligence" tailors the evidence as necessary (selecting and rejecting material on the basis of whether or not it supports the predetermined desired outcome), pass it on to other foreign "intelligence", and then get feedback from them, based on that evidence.
4. "Intelligence" gathers together and presents to the president (or his handler) the tailored evidence, together with the evidence from foreign intelligence, which serves as confirmation.
5. Bombs away.

In computing terms it's a case of GIGO - garbage in, garbage out.

As George (our George, that is) said, whether the President was consciously lying or not isn't really that important. To tell a lie you have to say something that you know not to be true. Some people are incapable of that - for example, our Tony Blair is probably constitutionally incapable of believing that anything he says is false, so, in a sense, he is unable to lie. The same may well be the case for Bush.

I'm sorry Dickey, but a single quote taken in isolation from a report means, er, what exactly?
Kendall has simply posed a question. The answer, like the subject, is tricky. Lying can mean the utterance of untruths, or can mean not uttering the truth, or can mean the slective uttering of the truth to imply something that is false.
The fact is, the US administration wanted to invade Iraq before 11/9/2001 and after that date made every attempt to paint Saddam as a danger to the West and a terrorist's friend. Those claims turn out to have been false, and some people actively involved in the intelligence community knew them at the time to be false.
I fear your delivery, showmanship or whatever you'd like to call it needs a bit of a polish if you are hoping to be able to go 'Ta-da!' and expose a killer fact that reduces your opponents to gibbering wrecks.

In 2000, Saudi Arabia went on kingdom-wide alert after learning that Iraq had agreed to help al Qaeda attack U.S. and British interests on the peninsula. In 2001, satellite images show large numbers of al Qaeda terrorists displaced after the war in Afghanistan relocating to camps in northern Iraq financed, in part, by the Hussein regime. In 2002, a report from the National Security Agency in October reveals that Iraq agreed to provide safe haven, financing and weapons to al Qaeda members relocating in northern Iraq. In 2003, on February 14, the Philippine government ousted Hisham Hussein, the second secretary of the Iraqi embassy in Manila, for his involvement in al Qaeda-related terrorist activites. Andrea Domingo, head of Immigration for the Philippine government, told reporters that "studying the movements and activities" of Iraqi intelligence assets in the country, including radical Islamists, revealed an "established network" of terrorists headed by Hussein.

Crazy Horse, feel free.

Bruce, I wish you wouldn't just fling such broad statements around. What on earth are you referring to, that I accepted claims of Saddam? That he had no WMD? I was operating more on Blix than Hussein. And I think since then there has been considerable substantiation of the notion that the WMD charge was fabricated. The only motives I have been able to discover for such a distortion of intelligence is (a) wanting to break the French contract for oil which Saddam had made with Elf Aquitaine and (b) wanting to stop him from having aloose cannon effect on the OPEN market strategies and the Saudian control thereof.

I could be wrong about the motives.

" And I think since then there has been considerable substantiation of the notion that the WMD charge was fabricated."

AT THE TIME, the information presented was thought to be correct- so how is THAT a lie?

On the Niger/Uranium thing - British Intelligence has never walked back on what it passed on to the US. They have always thought that there was something there.

MGOH - The UNMOVIC Inspections were stopped and the US and their Coalition partners acted because Iraq was considered to be in material breach of UN Security Council Resolution 1441 on seven counts. The President of the United States of America and the Government of the United States of America had made it abundantly clear to both the United Nations and to Saddam Hussein that they would act if the UN did not.

Did Bush Lie? Does it matter now?

There's now so much insulation between him & any inquiry that the leads & the trails & tales will all grow cold before any one gets warm & close to the truth. Truth is the appearance of his lies are so damaging that he might as well have lied, if he didn't (my opinion is he did, many times) the out come becomes the same. It appears that he was lied to & it appears that he knew it. He was top dog & should have had intellegance weither his own or his close knit group, none had intellegance, now or then. Their heads should roll for no braining it on their own. That incompetance is reason enough. Beyond their not looking into it further in their mad rush to war they now have a split nation on their hands that doesn't trust a move they now make which costs our government daily in it's decision making process. The way that Bush & company has continued to handle "THE LIE(S)" only caused more speculation. Who's voice can the nation trust? No a one! We have been given no reliable info from jump street & still get nothing worth the air it's played on. The lack of info is the fault of Bush & company & it comes back full circle to bite us all on the ass. We didn't demand it & we never got it. Congress rolled over on the people, as well as the media. Most lied by not demanding the truth, espically when a nation goes to war over it. I'd go as far as to say that we are all either victims or as guilty as those who rolled over the rest. He should've been called on his lies then & still should be called on them today. If he doesn't like being called to task on it or can't hear the call he should be tossed out & hung to dry.

There is lots on the www about the issue of 'yellow cake' sales and attempts to buy and what the Brits said to the Yanks. The Niger/Nigeria mix up no doubt comes for the use of an unfortunate adjective. I would GUESS that someone somewhere heard a person refer to yellow cake from Niger as 'Nigerian yellow cake' and now Nigeria is involved in the fiasco. What a difficult language we have.

The worst fault a leader can have is to become good at lying to himself! Then, he can say almost anything with what passes for a 'clear conscience'.

Bush and his cronies had a NEED to find certain things...so they grasped at any vague implications or weak evidence for what they wanted. Whether promulgating this is lying or not is almost irrelevant now. The fact is, their entire plan, justification and understanding of what it meant to entering Iraq was flawed and poorly executed.
   They were WARNED by experts that they would run afoul of the sectarian conflicts, but they chose to listen to those who said, "oh, it'll be fine...they'll be glad to see us!"

   Whether there was 'lying' in the original plan or not, there sure is lying now about who screwed up and major deception about how they are gonna get OUT of all this quagmire!
