Lie by Lie - Chronicled

As AlterNet writes:

"The Bush administration's lies about Iraq just keep coming, from the revelations in Bob Woodward's latest book to Bush's claim that "Nobody has ever suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the [9/11] attack."

The timeline shows, for instance, that in September 2002 Bush said, "You can't distinguish between Saddam and Al Qaeda when you talk about the war on terror."

United overbooked a flight and, having only realized this after the flight had boarded, tried to force a few randomly selected passengers off. One man refused to vacate the seat he paid for and, thus, had a reasonable expectation of sitting in. Security office…
