Condi's Lies Aren't Selling Anymore

The last stage in a proven liar is when people start yelling out things during your latest lies. That is the fate experienced by Condi Rice as she tried to explain how great the decision to go into Iraq was. The standard technique is to push the verdict as far into the future as possible, and at that point you can say, “Okay, we made a huge mistake and got a lot of people killed, but that was a long time ago. It’s time to move on and not get bogged down in the past.” That's why she's talking about the verdict of history right now, instead of what we already see. But what about the initial threat Saddam posed? How is that sounding now, and how has it changed for her and other top Bush officials?
Condi Rice’s position recently sounded like this: “I'm quite aware that there are those who disagree about the decision that we would overthrow Saddam Hussein," Rice said. "I'm quite aware that there are those who believe that he should have been given more time, who believe that we could have contained him," Rice added.
Could have contained him? Here are a couple of quotes from 2001 by Colin Powell and Condi that indicate the real feeling about Saddam as a threat. Of course, this was before the marketing campaign to sell iraq as a response to 9/11 began. Colin Powell in Cairo February 24, 2001:
"He (Saddam Hussein) has not developed any significant capability with respect to weapons of mass destruction. He is unable to project conventional power against his neighbors." Condoleeza Rice, July 2001:
"We are able to keep his arms from him. His military forces have not been rebuilt."
The difference now is people aren’t just sitting back and listening to the latest batch of lies. One young man at the Australian University where Condi was speaking, yelled out, “"Condoleezza Rice, you're a war criminal. Iraqi blood is on your hands and you can't wash that blood away.”
There are websites devoted to her many lies. Some like the “No one could have imagined…” lie have become famous. That one was so big it became a celebrity. Condi has thrived in the Bush Administration partly because of a complete willingness, even an eagerness, to lie to the American people.
Unfortunately for her, the truth has a way of catching up to you.
