    one which is much more egregious.  According to Woodward, within months of the end of the "war" CIA expert Bob Rischer informs Bush personally that there is an insurgency.  Bush's response - no there isn't and even if there is, we don't talk about it because "I don't want to read about it in the New York Times."  This is not denial, this is a intentional decision to ignore the existence of the insurgency.  The result, no counter insurgency measures are taken which results in where we are now and 2700 dead Americans. This is not oblivion or denial, these are intentional acts which mean Bush and his gang are murderers in my book.

    Juan Cole has an excellent discussion of this point.
