Iraq: Denial and Deception


Was that the title of a second-rate YouTube video re-documenting the dishonest path to war? Hardly! "Iraq: Denial and Deception" is the header of the transcript of this speech on the Whitehouse website. The speech, delivered days before congress voted to authorize the use of force, has many choice bits. Here’s my favorite: What’s yours?

-"If military action is necessary, the United States and our allies will help the Iraqi people rebuild their economy, and create the institutions of liberty in a unified Iraq at peace with its neighbors. " Humorous in light of the wall being built to divide sects in Baghdad

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
