    #1706572 - 07/11/03 06:42 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

"CIA director takes responsibility for incorrect information in State of the Union address about alleged Iraqi attempts to obtain uranium in Africa. Details soon."

They're trying to get Bush out of this scott-free... and they will if everyone else is willing to take the blame.

They can spin it: "Bush was ignorant, he trusted the CIA and they let him down."

shouldnt Bush himself be responsible for the words that come out of his mouth?

As much as I hate Bush, I'd say that if he was given bad information, then that information isn't his fault. But he'd better prove he's not happy about it by firing a few of the responsible people.

To say that they lied means they said it knowing it to be false. In his speech he said "According to British Intelligence..."

Blair has stood by this, citing several other sources.

Tenet has only admitted that he shouldn't have allowed Bush to cite an uncorroborated source. Now, while the particular piece of intelligence that was citited turned out to be false, how does this make any of them liars?

so i could knowingly say the sky is falling and then when its proven false i can just say that someone else told me to say it? This president needs to take accountability for HIS ACTIONS.

I guess you think it's realistic for the president to personally go out and verify every piece of information he is given before he makes a decision? (I can't believe I'm defending Bush)

You are defending him because it is common sense. One sentence of information turns out to be false, and everyone acts like there was some giant conspiracy.

a college student writing a thesis has to know and back everthing up in their paper. the state of the union address is not a 3rd grade report. what im really getting at is that i dont think the president didnt know the info was false. we all knew he had already made up his mind to go to war and he was going to use everthing at his disposal to make it happen whether the info was true or not.

I have to admit, that was a funny!


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Uh, dude, are you saying that it's unreasonable for us to expect the PRESIDENT to know what the fuck is going on when it comes to a war that was as controversial as this one?

No, he should know what the fuck is going on.  But all of his information is based on what people tell him.  I don't know how he should determine when he's being lied to.  :confused:
