Chalk Up Another Lie

The White House has given several versions of when Bush knew about the NIE on Iran’s nuclear program. This includes the rather laughable, but not shocking, claim that in August 2007, Director of National Intelligence McConnell told Bush they had new information on Iran’s nuclear program and Bush did not bother to ask what it was.

But apparently, that position, which simply confirms Bush is a moron, is preferred over the actual reality — that Bush likely knew by February or March 2007 that Iran did not have an active nuclear weapons program.

White House officials have now admitted that George W. Bush was told that the intelligence assessment on a covert Iranian nuclear programme might change last August, but they have avoided answering the question of when the president was first informed about the new intelligence that led to that revised assessment.

Bush would not be denied his warmongering.

It appears that Bush knew there was no reason for his rhetoric when Norm Podhoretz stated he came to the White House and met with Bush for 45 minutes and made the case for Bombing Iran. The meeting was apparently arranged by the White House and was not on Bush’s public schedule.

I’m sure our White House press corps will get right on this.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
