If You're Going to Lie, Lie Big
- The one thing we've learned but Mr. Bush has not, is that depending on whom you do it to, lying can be a crime even if you are not under oath. Mr. Bush knows that if his in-house liars, of whom he has an abundance from whom to select, lie under oath they may be subject to criminal prosecution. He thinks if they are not under oath when they lie to Congress it's not a crime. There's a reason for his confusion. He told the biggest lie of all and has not been prosecuted for it. What he doesn't realize is that's not because he was not under oath. It's because he didn't tell it to a Congressional committee. He told it to the entire world and that's not a crime even though to date it's gotten 3400 American soldiers killed, more than 25,000 American soldiers wounded and depending on what reports you choose to read, between 200,000 and 600,000 Iraqis killed.
