Lewis on Iraq

...the dead and the wounded are not the only casualties of President Bush’s decision to invade Iraq. Something else has died in those desert sands. Something else has been lost.

Truth. Honesty. Integrity.

For over a year, the American people have been deceived by the words of the President and his Administration. Officials at every level have misled the people that they were elected to serve.

We asked for truth, and President Bush told us that "Iraq sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."

We asked for truth, and Vice President Cheney repeatedly warned us of close ties between Al Qaeda and Iraq.

We asked for truth, and Secretary of State Colin Powell told the United Nations that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

We asked for truth, and President Bush warned us that Iraq had planes that could fly weapons of mass destruction to our shores.

We asked for truth, and they told us that our troops would be greeted as liberators – that Iraqi oil would pay to rebuild Iraq.

The falsehoods go on and on. I don’t know whether the Administration cannot stop – or will not stop. I only know that they do not stop...
