    Except when America-hating leftists purposely spread propaganda to slander this country. Then, their lying is just part of being a good commie.

    The British report was based on the forgeries.

    I'de say Bush did a pretty good job of hating on America. If he didn't hate America then why did he allow 911 and kill 3000 innocents, invade Iraq under false pretenses and kill 4000 more Americans and then promote a Housing bubble that robbed 1000's of their homes? If that's not hate I don't know what is.

    LOL You mean they stand by their false report.


    March 7, 2003-July 7, 2003: US and Britain Continue to Maintain They Have Evidence Iraq Was Trying to Buy Uranium from Niger; Evidence Based on Forged Documents

    After the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reports that the Niger documents (see March 2000) are not authentic (see March 7, 2003), the US and British governments stand behind their claim that Iraq had sought uranium from an African country. The two countries maintain that they have additional evidence—from multiple sources—but do not elaborate. Pressed by journalists and inspectors to reveal their evidence, the two governments refuse. The IAEA tells Reuters that when it asked the US and Britain whether or not they have additional evidence that Iraq had tried to procure uranium, the answer was “no.” [Reuters, 3/26/2003]

    This is false. In fact the yellowcake in Iraq, 550 tons of the stuff, was shipped to Canada. snopes.com: Yellowcake Uranium Removed from Iraq

    Whoops—Iraq was trying to buy uranium in Niger.

    Re: George W. Bush Is Intervening in Iraq—Again

    snopes.com: Yellowcake Uranium Removed from IraqMore BS and half truths. The yellow cake removed from Iraq in 2008 was found and ID'd by UN weapon inspectors long before Bush. There is no evidence that any of it was obtained after 1991.

    The yellowcake removed from Iraq in 2008 was material that had long since been identified, documented, and stored in sealed containers under the supervision of U.N. inspectors. It was not a "secret" cache that was recently "discovered" by the U.S, nor had the yellowcake been purchased by Iraq in the years immediately preceding the 2003 invasion. The uranium was the remnants of decades-old nuclear reactor projects that had put out of commission many years earlier: One reactor at Al Tuwaitha was bombed by Israel in 1981, and another was bombed and disabled during Operation Desert Storm in 1991. Moreover, the fact that the yellowcake had been in Iraq since before the 1991 Gulf War was plainly stated in the Associated Press article cited in the example above:
    Tuwaitha and an adjacent research facility were well known for decades as the centerpiece of Saddam's nuclear efforts.

    Israeli warplanes bombed a reactor project at the site in 1981. Later, U.N. inspectors documented and safeguarded the yellowcake, which had been stored in aging drums and containers since before the 1991 Gulf War. There was no evidence of any yellowcake dating from after 1991, the official said.

    of lie.

    Yes, Bush lied about Iraq: Why are we still arguing about this? - Salon.com
    It is only willful if the person speaking is trying to deceive, which implies that he knows that what he's saying is untrue, which, of course, is lying.
