Yeah I just can't reckon how anybody gets the idea that our government would lie to us. there just hasn't been any hard evidence that's ever happened...
I love this one:
Cheney, almost in the same sentence, talks of the 16 Security Council resolutions Hussein had violated (necessitating, obviously an invasion of Iraq, but just a quick one) while discussing his support of the practice of waterboarding and other torture techniques which are against U.N. resolutions. I know we're immune to U.N. resolutions and all but, come on - these people are sadistic. And on the "lies" front, I love how gently and vaguely Cheney concedes that "that the original NIE was off in some of its major judgments" referring to the "intelligence" that was supposedly used to support this war in the first place. I trust these people... to serve themselves
