BUSH LIED TO TAKE US
TO WAR IN IRAQ
The Downing Street Memo, dated July 23, 2002 offers proof that President Bush LIED by claiming over and over after July 23, 2002, and until the war itself began, that he had not made up his mind about invading Iraq.
Bush: �Of course, I haven�t made up my mind we�re going to war with Iraq.� [10/1/02]
Bush: �Hopefully, we can do this peacefully � don�t get me wrong. And if the world were to collectively come together to do so, and to put pressure on Saddam Hussein and convince him to disarm, there�s a chance he may decide to do that. And war is not my first choice, don�t � it�s my last choice.� [11/7/02]
Bush: �This is our attempt to work with the world community to create peace. And the best way for peace is for Mr. Saddam Hussein to disarm. It�s up to him to make his decision.� [12/4/02]
Bush: �You said we�re headed to war in Iraq � I don�t know why you say that. I hope we�re not headed to war in Iraq. I�m the person who gets to decide, not you. I hope this can be done peacefully.� [12/31/02]
Bush: �First of all, you know, I�m hopeful we won�t have to go war, and let�s leave it at that.� [1/2/03]
Bush: �But Saddam Hussein is � he�s treated the demands of the world as a joke up to now, and it was his choice to make. He�s the person who gets to decide war and peace.� [2/7/03]
Bush: �I�ve not made up our mind about military action. Hopefully, this can be done peacefully.� [3/6/03]
Bush: �I want to remind you that it�s his choice to make as to whether or no"
