US regime told 953 lies after 9/11 to justify the war in Iraq and Afghanistan

'935 President George Bush lies took USA into Iraq war'

George Bush and his advisers told a pack of lies in the aftermath of September 11, it was claimed yesterday.

They are accused of issuing 935 false statements about Iraq in the two years after the terror attacks on the United States in 2001.

A report claims they "led the nation to war under decidedly false pretences".

Surveys of statements in which Iraq was mentioned were carried out by two nonprofit journalism bodies.

President Bush and his administration repeatedly stated Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, or was trying to get them, or had links to al-Qaeda or both, the Centre for Public Integrity and the Fund for Independence in Journalism found.

Yesterday a White House spokesman stressed Iraq was a threat under Saddam before the 2003 invasion.

He added: "The actions taken in 2003 were based on the collective judgement of intelligence agencies around the world."

Metro, "Blair's 'dodgy dossier' on Iraq set to be revealed after Government loses appeal on keeping it secret", 24 January 2008.
    The Foreign Office has been ordered to publish an early draft of Tony Blair's "dodgy dossier" on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.
    [The printed article in this morning's Metro also included a paragraph about Dr David Kelly, the government weapons expert who was "found dead after" exposing the official case for war as a pack of lies.]
    However, the draft was never seen by Lord Hutton, who carried out the 2004 inquiry into the death of weapons expert David Kelly, the first to question the 45-minute claim.
    The tribunal said: "We do not accept that we should treat the Hutton report as the final word."
