The Washington Post has a nice little compilation of recent lies and half truths from President Bush on various subjects. The most frustrating thing to me about the run up to war in Iraq is that the Bush administration refuses to make an honest, persuasive argument in favor of war. I read logical, well presented arguments in favor of invading Iraq in magazines and on weblogs every day, but what we get from the administration is crap. If they can’t effectively explain why they want to go to war, why should I believe that they can prosecute the war effectively, or that they’ll behave sensibly in its aftermath? These are frustrating times.
