Liar, liar, pants on fire
(In response to "Bush lied and why nobody cares," June 17): Of course he lied, what was he supposed to do, tell the truth? Do you have any idea how the truth would have sounded? "My fellow Americans, on this day, the United States of America will attack Iraq because, quite frankly, we've been eye-ballin' their oil wells for quite some time and have come to the conclusion that they would be more lucrative under American management." It would sound unethical to tell the truth, not to mention un-American. "Liberating the Iraqi people" sounds so much more heroic. Who can argue with that? Perhaps the few of us who knew the truth from the beginning, but were labeled "anti-American" because we dare to be realistic.
