t r u t h o u t - William Rivers Pitt | Yes, They Lied

CLICK TO READ: t r u t h o u t - William Rivers Pitt | Yes, They Lied

William Rivers Pitt attempts to unspin the spinners and separate the fact from fiction, the disinformation from information, and the nonsensical from the sensible surrounding the ever confusing and often misleading jabber about the run-up to the Iraq war. If you're at all confused by the "talking point" men and women in the media, this article will help.

PITT: "Find a defender of the White House on your television these days, and you are likely to hear them blame Bill Clinton for Iraq. Yes, you read that right. The talking point du jour lately has focused on comments made by Clinton from the mid-to-late 1990s to the effect that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and was a threat. The pretzel logic here, of course, is straightforward: this Democratic president thought the stuff was there, and that justifies the claims made by the Bush crew over the last few years about Iraqi weapons...."
