935 Lies = 1 very bad war

As if we didn't already know... a new study has counted 935 lies about Iraq by the Bush Administration in the two years between 9/11/01 and the start of hostilities in 2003. The report, conducted by the Center for Public Integrity in conjunction with the Fund for Independence in Journalism, concludes that these lies
"were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses."

Here's the full AP article: Study: False statements preceded war
