Norman Podhoretz reviews the 'lies' that got us into the 'immoral war' in Iraq.
What makes this charge so special is the amazing success it has enjoyed in getting itself established as a self-evident truth even though it has been refuted and discredited over and over again by evidence and argument alike. In this it resembles nothing so much as those animated cartoon characters who, after being flattened, blown up, or pushed over a cliff, always spring back to life with their bodies perfectly intact. Perhaps, like those cartoon characters, this allegation simply cannot be killed off, no matter what. Nevertheless, I want to take one more shot at exposing it for the lie that it itself really is.I understand where Podhoretz is coming from here, the claim that 'Bush Lied' is so pervasive that it is taken as an undeniable truth. Why is it that so many people believe something that simply isn't true, and apparently cannot be convinced even by a very strong case that it isn't true? Anyway, it is a good review of the 'Bush lied' nonsense and why that simply is not true. (via Instapundit)
