Iraq Lies Links

I wrote an article for the July-August issue of Z on the Top Lies about Iraq from the Bush administration. I started late and could only fit seven (with explanations) in the space allotted, though there are many more. Here some links I had bookmarked for additional research on Bush lies about Iraq.

Note – This list is not meant to be exhaustive, and is currently sans many source links, as to the Duelfer Report, etc. I plan to update it in the future and, when I can make the time, add another post linking more directly to the points from the article. Feel free to comment with more links, comments, etc.
