    I know it will be dismissed as it is in the WAPO, however on a lot of news sources today, apparently the bio weapons of mass destruction is all a figment of the imagination of this administration, no matter how you cut it how long will the American Public tolerate this. Wake up america..

    On May 29, 2003, 50 days after the fall of Baghdad, President Bush proclaimed a fresh victory for his administration in Iraq: Two small trailers captured by U.S. and Kurdish troops had turned out to be long-sought mobile "biological laboratories." He declared, "We have found the weapons of mass destruction."

    The claim, repeated by top administration officials for months afterward, was hailed at the time as a vindication of the decision to go to war. But even as Bush spoke, U.S. intelligence officials possessed powerful evidence that it was not true.

    A secret fact-finding mission to Iraq -- not made public until now -- had already concluded that the trailers had nothing to do with biological weapons. Leaders of the Pentagon-sponsored mission transmitted their unanimous findings to Washington in a field report on May 27, 2003, two days before the president's statement.

    The three-page field report and a 122-page final report three weeks later were stamped "secret" and shelved. Meanwhile, for nearly a year, administration and intelligence officials continued to publicly assert that the trailers were weapons factories.

    Here is a graphic that shows the subsequent lies..

    The "bioweapons labs" turned out to be "sand toilets".

    This report, of course, was buried as this administration is apt to do with facts that discredit their ideology.

    Lets admit it. Where we are right now is caught up in a national lie, a lie that was the rationale for a pre-emptive strike- and we are going to allow these people convince us that Iran is now a threat? The lie is being covered up with more lies...what a tangled web they weave.

    When your credibility is lost, your presidency is done.

    In a sand toilet, do you wipe your behind with sand paper?
