Bush misled public on Iran situation

Posted: Friday, December 14, 2007

President Bush has been actively misleading us on Iran. Bush said recently that he "only learned of the new intelligence assessment last week."

But according to the Washington Post, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley "said Bush was first told in August or September about intelligence indicating Iran had halted its weapons program, but was advised it would take time to evaluate."

Here's the Post:

"President Bush got the world's attention this fall when he warned that a nuclear-armed Iran might lead to World War III. But his stark warning came at least a month or two after he had first been told about fresh indications that Iran had actually halted its nuclear weapons program."

Just like he did with Iraq, Bush is ignoring the intelligence and recklessly pushing toward war. We can't afford to let Bush and Cheney start another disastrous war. Congress must act now and make it clear that President Bush has no authority to strike Iran. The new National Intelligence Estimate shows that Iran is not the threat Bush says it is.

The time has come for the citizens and true patriots of the United States to stand up and tell this executive branch run amok, no more. No war with Iran. And it is time to begin impeachment of a president and vice president that have made a mockery of our country.
