No, they voted for the resolution but explained their vote and what they wanted. Again, read Kerry for example. It was not a vote to go to war, it was a vote to allow Bush to decide.So what? Those people can choose to vote against the war and they did. They were a MINORITY.
After the war, Bush stated that he found out that the intelligence was wrong and was just as disappointed as everybody else when wmd were not found. He nonetheless stands by his decision citing the many OTHER reasons for invasion.
And if you buy that about Bush after the war, you'll buy just about anything. Again, the IG ruled the intel was used inapropriately. What was seen as reliable by the CIA was correct. Wha was doubted proved to be false. So, the intel was correct. How it was used was wrong.
Again, I point to IG report. It did report the intel was used inapropriately.and no report, investigation, or committee has found evidence to support this. The only one's I am aware who claim this are conspiracy theorists and people with a political agenda.
No one, or nothing of integrity. can you provide a source of integrity who supports your claim that Bush lied or deliberately misrepresented?
This report documents significant instances in which the administration went beyond what the intelligence community knew--well beyond what the intelligence committee knew or believed, most notably on the false assertion that Iraq and al-Qaida had an operational relationship, a partnership, and the manipulative attempt to suggest, inaccurately, that Iraq had any complicity in the attacks of September 11--shockingly wrong statements which were made and made and made.
Sen. Rockefeller on Prewar Iraq Intelligence
The Pentagon's acting inspector general, Thomas Gimble, told the senate armed services committee that the office headed by Douglas Feith, formerly the number three man at the defence department, took "inappropriate" actions in pushing the al-Qaida connection not backed up by America's intelligence agencies.

Again false. Through Cheney's office, they went beyond the intel and used doubted intel in their arguments. Read up on Chalibi and his heors in error, curveball, and al Libi.correction. Bush was informed by Intelligence services and made his arguments for war based on those. Those Intelligence Services were found to be in error.
All you have demonstrated so far is speculation and conjecture. What report or investigation supports your accusations? Or is it all a "conspiracy"?
I have cited the IG report. However I note you are setting up a standard that's a bit deceptive. That gives me a bit of a laugh. If you use intel that is knowingly inapporpriate, I'm sure I can only conlcude he wasn't lying.
