Quotes

former White House council to Richard Nixon: The most troubling thing about the fact of the distortions and the misleading statements that Bush gave Congress, is that it is a federal felony, it's a crime, to mislead and distort information and present it to the Congress.

The New Leadership
24 December 2003 | by (Edmond, OK) – See all my reviews

What members of the Bush administration said. Why it was all false.

Lots of words about weapons of mass destruction, nuclear weapons, biological weapons, chemical weapons, grave threats, and Al-Qaeda. Nothing about concern or freedom for the Iraqi people, something that came stage center only after the other reasons for the war were exposed as bald-faced lies.

Oscars to Mr. Bush and Mr. Powell for superior acting (lying in a most convincing fashion) and to Mr. Rumsfeld for a chameleonic performance (changing as the story changed).

This is a film every American and Briton should watch.
