If You're Not Angry Yet

About the President's lies/obfuscations/ommissions/commissions (whichever parsing you chose) this one should push you over the top. According to Judicial Watch, the group that pushed for Clinton's impeachment (so no lefty group here), has obtained documents showing "Iraqi oilfields, pipelines, refineries and terminals, as well as 2 charts detailing Iraqi oil and gas projects, and “Foreign Suitors for Iraqi Oilfield Contracts.” These were dated March of 2001 and were part of the Vice President's Energy Task Force.
It will be interesting to see the administration and its defenders/lackeys/dissemblers explain this one over the weekend. And it certainly brings to fore the question of why we invaded Iraq. We now know the uranium claims were false; the alleged connections to Al Qaeda were false; and, no WMD evidence has been found to date. Add to that the VP's maps carving up Iraq's oil riches back in 2001 and one really has to start questioning the administration's drive to war.
