blumenthal: bush knew saddam had no wmd

6 Sep

Sidney Blumenthal claims Bush dismissed evidence that Iraq had no WMDs as worthless: –

On Sept. 18, 2002, CIA director George Tenet briefed President Bush in the Oval Office on top-secret intelligence that Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction, according to two former senior CIA officers. Bush dismissed as worthless this information from the Iraqi foreign minister, a member of Saddam’s inner circle, although it turned out to be accurate in every detail…

[…]

…the information was distorted in a report written to fit the preconception that Saddam did have WMD programs. That false and restructured report was passed to Richard Dearlove, chief of the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), who briefed Prime Minister Tony Blair on it as validation of the cause for war.

Somebody, someday, will pay for the lies.

    Sir Richard Dearlove is a Patron (or Signatory) of The Henry Jackson Society (HJS) – in fact, he is the ‘chief bottlewasher’ at, I believe, one of the Cambridge University Colleges – the one in which The Henry Jackson Society resides.By the way, Richard Perle is also a Patron of HJS – along with a number of other dodgy characters.

    And this too, hopefully to raise a smile – not entirely unrelated to the above : LIES AND LIARSA man died and went to heaven.As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.He asked, “What are all those clocks?”St. Peter answered, “Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock.”Every time you lie, the hands on your clock will move.””Oh,” said the man, “whose clock is that?””That’s Mother Teresa’s. The hands have never moved, indicating she never told a lie.””Incredible,” said the man. “And whose clock is that one?”St. Peter responded, “That’s Abraham Lincoln’s clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire Life.””Where’s President Bush’s clock ?” asked the man.”That’s in Jesus’ office…… He’s using it as a ceiling fan”.(RWS Hat-tip : Ben Trovato – chez ‘Anticant’)
