Once again...

Just to refresh my own memory, it helps to write this out:

ANYONE who accuses the President of 'lying' about WMD in Iraq and/or 'deceiving' us into the war in Iraq is guilty of the exact thing of which they accuse the President; namely, cherry-picking intelligence to support and conform to a pre-determined course of action.

There was ample evidence that Saddam had WMD. There was significant evidence that Saddam had no WMD.

At the end of the day, the President had to make a decision. He decided that there was no conclusive evidence that Saddam did not have them - and he would not give Saddam the benefit of any doubt.

You may not like the decision he made. You might have made a different decision than he did. accuse him of lying is to assert that he knew without doubt that Iraq DID NOT HAVE any WMD.

That assertion is patently false.

Believe what you like, just don't fool yourself that you have any facts to support your position.

Feelings are not facts. Just because you think he lied doesn't make it so.

Wake up!
