Five biggest lies bush told someone

I thought I'd have a look and see if I agreed with the people who want to teach us what a lie is and what is big

1) The administration repeatedly attested that Saddam Hussein had developed weapons of mass destruction

Depends on what you mean by a WMD but on the whole I think Bush believed Saddam and some selected pieces of intelligence. Sure Saddam ain’t that trustworthy but if he says he has them you start to wonder.

2) downplayed the cost and risk of the proposed invasion and occupation

I think they totally failed to understand it. the strategy was it would seem, in error - you don’t launch a flawed strategy on purpose is again

3) shamelessly evoked the atrocious abuse of power of Hussein and his family while brooking no commitment to rebuild the country after the terrifying "shock and awe" campaign

they did try to rebuild (failure or success is a different question)

TRUTH - (counter claim is a LIE)

4) provided substanceless theory linking Saddam Hussein to the attacks of September 11, thereby cynically manipulating the anger and sorrow of the American citizenry.

TRUE (yeah of course you know what you are doing when you do that, of course they probably thought there was a connection)

where did 5 go? oh well never mind

Liars know they are lying and know its wrong. Confabulators make stuff up to suit the moment and don't particularly concern themselves with either facts or reality. Confabulators are more concerned with themselves and their own belief system than socially correct behavior. Confabulators come to believe what they have made up. Confabulators believe that others believe what they say. Sort of self absorbed and immature. Touchdown!
