"The story of Saddam training foreign fighters to hijack airplanes was instrumental in building the case to invade Iraq," a detailed report in the March-April issue says. "But it turns out that the Iraqi general who told the story to the New York Times and 'Frontline' was a complete fake a low-ranking former soldier whom Ahmed Chalabi's aides had coached to deceive the media."

The Mother Jones investigator, Jack Fairweather, was even able to track down a Lt. Gen. Ghurairy in Iraq. He interviewed him in Fallujah and this Ghurairy said he had never left Iraq, nor had he ever spoken to the U.S. journalists.

Does anyone think that this will stop people from repeating the lie?

Hell, even Mansbridge was saying the other night that 9/11 was justification for the American invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

With most delightful brevity, letter-writer Catherine Mori, in response to a letter concerning the guiding principles of our presence in Afghanistan, reminds readers, in today's Vancouver Sun, that the perpetrators of 9/11 sealed their fates in their own deaths and that since most were citizens of Saudi Arabia, a repressive dictatorship and friend of the U.S., a geography lesson appears necessary.

Others, too, have questioned the much greater terrorism that followed, with the dropping of 4,000 bombs on Iraq.

Iraq is not in a civil war, really!

Allawi says it is in one.

The stupid liars can't even get their stories straight.
