Those of you whose Congress-Critter(s) chose to be complicit in the invasion of Iraq, please

And ask them if they are standing by the story that they were "tricked" by George W. Bush.

1. Rachel's point is

that Bush lied.

Hubris: The Selling of the Iraq War - Monday 2/18 at 9 p.m. ET

By Will Femia

Last night Rachel pointed out that this year marks the tenth anniversary of President George W. Bush's State of the Union address containing the now infamous 16 words that turned out to be a very consequential lie:

“The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa .”

Included in a collection of web materials associated with Rachel's upcoming documentary "Hubris: The Selling of the Iraq War," is a longer cut of that 2003 State of the Union address. It's a powerful reminder of how thick the Bush administration laid it on to rally the nation to war in Iraq:

2. Yes I totally agree. Bush and friends carried out a calculated effort to deceive the American

public into believing we had to invade Iraq to punish those responsible for the 9/11 disaster and to secure our safety. They should be punished.

I believe an equally important part of the story is that our Congressional representatives betrayed us and used the excuse that they were deceived. IMO that's also a lie. They were not deceived, they were complicit.
