Bush Lied Revisited
What is a lie? A lie is an “assertion of something known or believed by the speaker to be untrue: a deliberate misrepresentation of fact with intent to deceive (Webster’s Third).” Was President Bush lying when he said that he believed that Saddam Hussein’s Iraq was in possession of weapons of mass destruction? Let’s put the question another way: did President Bush not really believe that Saddam Hussein’s Iraq possessed WMDs? For that is what those who accuse the president of lying on this subject are saying.
I believe this is known as a serious Fisking in the blogosphere.

Update: I stand corrected by Parableman, "Fisking is when you examine a piece line by line or page by page with your comments inserted. This is just a good rebuttal."
