Rumsfeld Wants to Know Whether the CIA "Exaggerated"

May 26, 2003

Rumsfeld has called on the CIA to carry out an investigation of the various U.S. intelligence agencies. He wants to know–he actually said this–whether the U.S. intelligence agencies had "exaggerated" their findings about Iraq’s ties with al-Qaeda and its possession of weapons of mass destruction.

"Exaggerated?" That’s just a politician’s word for "lied." Rumsfeld should know whereof he speaks, since he was the one pushing the biggest of these lies.

Of course, it should come as no surprise that the man who condemned civilians, including children, to death to further imperialist ambitions would stoop to lying. What’s a little lie among murderers?
