It's official: Bush lied about Iraqi WMD

Well, it's official, as reported by the Associated Press - after 18 months, 1,000 officials and multiple tours of the entire country, the CIA-led Iraq Survey Group is officially disbanding, after finding not one single piece of evidence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction under Saddam Hussein's leadership. Why was this not a screaming front-page headline in most newspapers this week? The mainstream media certainly gave the subject a lot of press a couple of years ago, when Bush was outright lying to the American public, and presenting doctored photos to the United Nations, in order to justify an Empire-style invasion that by some counts has now caused the deaths of over 100,000 Iraqis. Where are all of you now that the truth has actually come out? Where are the screaming front-page headlines now?

Attention, journalists: Incidents like this are why the general public despises you, and are turning away from your organizations by droves. Wake up, get a clue, or go bankrupt - it's just that simple.
