USG Distortions According To Retired USAF Colonel

"Retired USAF Colonel and former National War College Professor Sam Gardiner has analyzed this phenomenon of con as it relates to Bush’s current adventures in democracy through occupation. Beyond the obvious fabrications that you and I might have seized upon, Colonel Gardiner painstakingly identifies 50 discrete and mostly successful efforts of this administration to mislead the American people, the Congress, and the world.

Fourteen administration lies are listed below. They represent less than a third of the well- circulated and promoted storylines 'manufactured or at least engineered that distorted the picture of Gulf II for the American and British people,' such as:

The link between terrorism, Iraq and 9/11.

Iraqi agents meeting with 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta.

Iraq's possession of chemical and biological weapons.

Iraq's purchase of nuclear materials from Niger.

Saddam Hussein's development of nuclear weapons.

Aluminum tubes for nuclear weapons.

The existence of Iraqi drones, WMD cluster bombs and Scud missiles.

Iraq's threat to target the US with cyber warfare attacks.

The rescue of Private Jessica Lynch.

The surrender of a 5,000-man Iraqi brigade.

Iraq executing Coalition POWs.

Iraqi soldiers dressing in US and UK uniforms to commit atrocities.

The exact location of WMD facilities.

WMDs moved to Syria."
