Davids Medienkritik finds the German media spreading yet another lie about the war in Iraq, using misquoted testimony to support an erroneous conclusion. So far the only provable lies in the case about Iraqi WMDs have been on the anti-war side. They claim Bush "lied" about uranium from Africa, then Tony Blair states that indeed British Intelligence did make that claim and Bush’s statement was correct. They argue that David Kelly was trying to throw cold water on the Blair government’s case, then the Hutton Inquest finds that Kelly himself believed Iraq was a threat and the BBC hounded him to his death. They argue that US intelligence somehow knew that Iraq’s WMD program didn’t exist when all available intelligence said that it did, including the intelligence services of France, Iran, Russia, Israel, the Czech Republic, Saudi Arabia as well as others indicated otherwise.
It is quite possible that Bush was wrong about Iraq’s WMD capabilities (and so was the UN for that matter), but that does not at all mean that he lied about it – except to those who viewed regime change in the United States as being preferable to regime change in Iraq.
