Tenet Assails Administration

George J. Tenet, the former director of the CIA, has assailed Vice President Dick Cheney and other Bush administration officials in his new book, "At the Center of the Storm", saying that they pushed the US into war in Iraq without ever conducting a "serious debate" about whether Saddam Hussein posed an imminent threat to the United States.


"There was never a serious debate that I know of within the administration about the imminence of the Iraqi threat."

Pentagon's Lies Exposed

When a country or political regime is losing a war, it searches desperately for stories that will encourage and embolden the "home front".

Usually, the more desperate the regime is to save its sorry reputation, the more embellished the stories become.

Under the full glare of a congressional committee, the lies told by the Pentagon (with the tacit approval of the Whitehouse) regarding the "heroism" of two of its service personnel have been exposed.

The brother of the late Cpl Pat Tillman, and Pte Jessica Lynch herself both appeared before the committee and debunked the stories propagated by the Pentagon about the heroism of Pte Lynch and Cpl Tillman.

Miss Lynch, who was injured near Nasiriyah in the 2003 invasion, said:

"I am still confused why they chose to lie and make me a legend."

Kevin Tillman, brother of Cpl Tillman, said that the deception "crossed the legal definition of fraud".

When a country and a "regime" deceives its own people in this way, the war is most assuredly lost and the grip on power of that "regime" failing fast.

Weapons of Mass Deception

Those of you with access to American PBS on Wednesday 25th April, between 21:00 and 22:30, should make sure that you tune in.

PBS will be showing a 90-minute video "Buying The War" which documents the lies that the Bush administration told to sell the Iraq War to the American public, with a special focus on how the media aided and abetted Bush lie to the public.
