A history of lies, and an alternative?

In Mother Jones, a new chronology of the government statements and actions leading up to the invasion of Iraq: Lie by Lie. The timeline goes back to 1990 and a comment by Secy of Defense Dick Cheney, warning that Saddam Hussein could dictate the future of energy policy. There are some fascinating quotes here, over many years. Check out, for example, the Bush campaign debate comment on 10/3/2000: "The Vice President believes in nation building. I would be very careful about using our troops as nation builders."
Via Washington Monthly's Political Animal, who says:
You can search by date, by keyword, or by topic to create your own personalized timelines. It's fun for the whole family!


Pensito Review has collected some interesting quotes, too, on Iraq as well as on Hurricane Katrina.

Thanks to an annoying recorded telephone message, a link to NationalDemocraticMessage.net, which has posted new Democratic proposals to change the nation's direction, as well as a 'Corruption File', links to progressive blogs by state, and other news and comments. Are there some real alternatives here?

  • I consider myself a liberal Democrat, but I am FED UP with those incessant calls from NationalDemocraticMessage.net. They are so annoying, so stupid, and so secretive about their identity -- not even providing a way to get off their calling list -- that I seriously begin to wonder if it's a Republican scam.
