OK, the Center for Public Integrity didn't really call them lies but nicely termed them "false statements." We might now just call them "enhanced truth."
Back in January 2008, the CPI story "False Pretenses" started like this:
President George W. Bush and seven of his administration's top officials, including Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, made at least 935 false statements in the two years following September 11, 2001, about the national security threat posed by Saddam Hussein's Iraq. Nearly five years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, an exhaustive examination of the record shows that the statements were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses.
On at least 532 separate occasions (in speeches, briefings, interviews, testimony, and the like), Bush and these three key officials, along with Secretary of State Colin Powell, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, and White House press secretaries Ari Fleischer and Scott McClellan, stated unequivocally that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction (or was trying to produce or obtain them), links to Al Qaeda, or both. This concerted effort was the underpinning of the Bush administration's case for war.
While none of the "top officials" whose false statements were documented in the report were CIA employees, you'd have to be a dolt not to think those statements were based on "intelligence" from agencies like the CIA.
I will close this diary, and I apologize for its brevity, with a quote from journalist I.F. Stone:
All governments lie, but disaster lies in wait for countries whose officials smoke the same hashish they give out.
