Lies, Lies, Lies

Firedoglake : Omerta

Here’s a tip for Bush Administration cronies:  if you are going to lie under oath, on the record, with a video camera in your face, don’t lie about something for which there is documentary evidence directly contradicting your statements.  It makes you look unprepared, panicked and sloppy.

New ‘Impeach Cheney’ Video

Robert Greenwald and the Brave New Films crowd have a new video out calling for the impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney. They concentrate on his fabrication/manipulation of intelligence to cause the US to invade Iraq and Iran.
