But in 2005, Graham was fiercely protective of Rice as she faced confirmation to take over the State Department, chaffing at terms used by Democratic lawmakers to describe her testimony.

"The words like ‘misleading’ and ‘disingenuous,’ I think, were very unfair," Graham said on Fox News.

Asked if then-Sen. Mark Dayton's use of the word "liar" was justified, Graham pounced.

"Yes, that's even more unfair. Because it was all in terms of weapons of mass destruction and misleading us about the war and what was in Iraq. Well, every intelligence agency in the world was misled. And to connect those two to say that she's a liar is very unfair, over the line."

3. Our Canadian government said of the Iraq intelligence it was given: "it follows

no previously known pattern of intelligence" so we in Canada did not join in the coalition of the willing. Canada thought it was bull****.
