Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan writes in a new memoir that President Bush relied on an aggressive "political propaganda campaign" instead of the truth to sell the Iraq war, it has been reported.It's not surprising to me the goose-steppers don't really care to change direction when information like this is brought to the table. Like their leaders, the minions are no different, so if lying in their favor is what it takes to get a little more tax cut here, a few more minorities in prison or on the run, so be it.
The Bush White House made "a decision to turn away from candor and honesty when those qualities were most needed," a time when the nation was on the brink of war, McClellan writes.
The way Bush managed the Iraq issue "almost guaranteed that the use of force would become the only feasible option," McClellan writes, according to accounts Wednesday in The New York Times and Washington Post.
Either way, whether Mclellan or O'Neil or Bremer or any other douche who worked for these clowns is lying now, they're definitely liars at some point.
They can all thank God they have church to goto where they can wipe these sins away. After all, that's the reason they believe in the first place.
This is great:
Bush "convinces himself to believe what suits his needs at the moment," McClellan writes.Nice euphemism.
He also faults Bush for a "lack of inquisitiveness."
