" Study: False statements preceded war" By DOUGLASS K. DANIEL,
Associated Press Writer regarding and alleging:
WASHINGTON - A study by two nonprofit journalism organizations
found that President Bush and top administration officials issued
hundreds of false statements about the national security threat
from Iraq in the two years following the 2001 terrorist attacks.
[snips] The study was posted Tuesday on the Web site of the Center
for Public Integrity, which worked with the Fund for Independence
White House spokesman Scott Stanzel did not comment on the merits
of the study Tuesday night but reiterated the administration's
position that the world community viewed Iraq's leader, Saddam
Hussein, as a threat.
The study concluded that the statements "were part of an
orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion
and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false
"935 false statements in the two-year period found in speeches,
briefings, interviews and other venues, made by Bush and
administration officials on at lease 532 occasions" regarding Iraq.
"The actions taken in 2003 were based on the collective judgment of
intelligence agencies around the world," Stanzel said.
The study counted 935 false statements in the two-year period. It
found that in speeches, briefings, interviews and other venues,
Bush and administration officials stated unequivocally on at least
532 occasions that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction or was
trying to produce or obtain them or had links to al-Qaida or both.
"It is now beyond dispute that Iraq did not possess any weapons of
mass destruction or have meaningful ties to al-Qaida," according to
Charles Lewis and Mark Reading-Smith of the Fund for Independence
in Journalism staff members, writing an overview of the study. "In
short, the Bush administration led the nation to war on the basis
of erroneous information that it methodically propagated and that
culminated in military action against Iraq on March 19, 2003."
Named in the study along with Bush were top officials of the
administration during the period studied: Vice President Dick
Cheney, national security adviser Condoleezza Rice, Defense
Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, Secretary of State Colin Powell,
Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz and White House press
secretaries Ari Fleischer and Scott McClellan.
Bush led with 259 false statements, 231 about weapons of mass
destruction in Iraq and 28 about Iraq's links to al-Qaida, the
study found. That was second only to Powell's 244 false statements
about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and 10 about Iraq and al-
The center said the study was based on a database created with
public statements over the two years beginning on Sept. 11, 2001,
and information from more than 25 government reports, books,
articles, speeches and interviews.
"The cumulative effect of these false statements — amplified by
thousands of news stories and broadcasts — was massive, with the
media coverage creating an almost impenetrable din for several
critical months in the run-up to war," the study concluded.
"Some journalists — indeed, even some entire news organizations —
have since acknowledged that their coverage during those prewar
months was far too deferential and uncritical. These mea culpas
notwithstanding, much of the wall-to-wall media coverage provided
additional, 'independent' validation of the Bush administration's
false statements about Iraq," it said.

935 false statements on 532 occasions preceded war: study 23 Jan
2008 A study by two nonprofit journalism organizations found that
President [sic] Bush and top administration officials issued
hundreds of false statements [lies] about the national security
threat from Iraq in the two years following the 2001 terrorist
attacks. The study concluded that the statements "were part of an
orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion

False Pretenses --Following 9/11, President Bush and seven top
officials of his administration waged a carefully orchestrated
campaign of misinformation about the threat posed by Saddam
Hussein's Iraq. By Charles Lewis and Mark Reading-Smith 23 Jan 2008
President [sic] George W. Bush and seven of his administration's
top officials, including Vice President [sic] Dick Cheney, National
Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, and Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld, made at least 935 false statements in the two years
following September 11, 2001, about the national security threat
posed by Saddam Hussein's Iraq. Nearly five years after the U.S.
invasion of Iraq, an exhaustive examination of the record shows
that the statements were part of an orchestrated campaign that
effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the
nation to war under decidedly false pretenses.
Iraq Parliament Purges Hussein Vestiges on Flag [Yeah, too bad they
don't purge vestiges of Blackwater on planet.] 23 Jan 2008 Iraqi
lawmakers adopted a modified version of the national flag on
Tuesday, removing three stars that symbolized the Baathist ideals
of unity, freedom and socialism, and Saddam Hussein’s handwritten
calligraphy of the Koranic incantation "Allahu akbar." [Right, all
that's been replaced with a little oil geyser, Halliburton's "H"

Winfield Danielson told AFP.
UN renews pressure on Iran 23 Jan 2008 Iran came under renewed
pressure to suspend its uranium enrichment programme last night,
when the five permanent members of the UN security council and
Germany agreed in principle on a new package of sanctions. A
meeting of foreign ministers in Berlin produced a compromise
resolution, which slightly expanded existing sanctions on Iranian
financial institutions and travel restrictions on government
members. It does not, however, include the broader economic embargo
sought by the US.
Israel Resumes Fuel Shipments to Gaza 23 Jan 2008 After widespread

Canada Troops Should Stay in Afghanistan, Panel Says 22 Jan 2008
Canada should extend its military mission in Afghanistan beyond
2009 and focus on training the Afghan army and police force, a

Deputy Prime Minister John Manley, also called on the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization to send about 1,000 more troops to
help Canadian soldiers in the Kandahar province as a condition for
an extended mission.

Documents reveal evidence of Afghan prisoner torture 22 Jan 2008
According to newly released documents from a court case brought by
human rights groups, a Canadian human rights officer discovered
last Nov. 5 an electrical cable and rubber hose alleged to have
been used by Afghan jailors in the torture of a prisoner turned
over by Canadian forces. The officer, in an interrogation room at
the secret police facility in Kandahar, examined a 10-centimetre
bruise on the man's back. "He ... pointed to a chair and stated
that the implements he had been struck with were underneath it,"
reads the court document in the case brought by rights groups
seeking to halt the transfer of Canadian detainees to Afghan
prisons. "Under the chair we found a large piece of braided
electrical wire as well as a rubber hose. He then showed us a
bruise on his back that could possibly be the result of a blow."
'Enemy combatant' receives 17-year US jail term 22 Jan 2008 A US
citizen held for more than three years without charge as an "enemy
combatant" [Jose Padilla] was today sentenced to 17 years and four
months in prison for conspiring to murder, kidnap and maim
overseas, including in Afghanistan, Chechnya and Bosnia.
Jose Padilla sentenced on terrorism charges --He gets 17 years,
four months, in case far removed from 'dirty bomb' 22 Jan 2008 Jose
Padilla, once accused of plotting with al-Qaida to blow up a
radioactive "dirty bomb," was sentenced Tuesday to 17 years and
four months on terrorism conspiracy charges that do not mention
those initial allegations. The sentence imposed by U.S. District
Judge Marcia Cooke marks another step in the extraordinary personal
and legal odyssey for the U.S. citizen who was held [without
charge] for 3½ years as an enemy combatant after his 2002 arrest
amid the "dirty bomb" allegations. He had faced up to life in
White House Has No Comprehensive E-Mail Archive --System Used by
Clinton Was Scrapped 22 Jan 2008 For years, the Bush regime has
relied on an inadequate archiving system for stopped storing the
millions of e-mails sent through White House servers, despite court
orders and statutes requiring the preservation of such records,
according to documents and technical experts. President [sic]
Bush's White House early on scrapped a custom archiving system that
the Clinton administration had adopted under a federal court order.
From 2001 to 2003, the Bush White House also recorded over computer
backup tapes that provided a last line of defense for preserving e-
mails. As a result, several years' worth of electronic
communication 'may have been lost,' [!] potentially including e-
mails documenting administration actions in the run-up to the Iraq

ID card scheme put off until after election --Leaked documents show
starting date of 2012 --Pilot plan for foreign nationals to start
this year 23 Jan 2008 A compulsory identity card system for British
citizens looks as if it will be deferred beyond the next election,
according to documents leaked to the Conservatives. As recently as
December the Home Office said the ID card system for UK citizens
would be phased-in on a voluntary basis from 2009, but a national
identity strategy paper, marked restricted, clearly shows the UK-
citizens phase of the scheme will now not start until 2012.

auction 22 Jan 2008 The United States has blocked the release of a
landmark assessment of oil and gas activity in the Arctic as it
prepares to sell off exploration licences for the frozen Chukchi
Sea off Alaska, one of the last intact habitats of the polar bear.
Scientists at the release of the censored report in Norway said
there was "huge frustration" that the US had derailed a science-

Oil prices point to hefty profits 21 Jan 2008 Oil at $100 a barrel
came and went in a flash. But crude prices that hovered at or above
$90 through most of the last three months of 2007 are expected to
mean pumped-up quarterly profits as the largest oil companies
report their earnings in coming weeks. The dramatic increase in oil
prices -- an average of about $91 a barrel throughout the fourth
quarter, 51 percent higher than the year-ago period -- is expected
to produce results that surpass the last three months of 2006. [No
worries. On the day that Exxon's next round of record profits is

$5.26 billion, or $1.16 a share, in the period a year earlier.
Fed Cuts Rate 0.75 Percentage Point in Emergency Move 22 Jan 2008
The Federal Reserve lowered its benchmark interest rate in an
emergency move for the first time since 2001 after stock markets
tumbled from Hong Kong to London and the U.S. economy showed
increasing signs that it's headed into a recession. Today's so-
called inter-meeting rate cut is the first since Sept. 17, 2001,
when the Fed lowered borrowing costs in the aftermath of the
terrorist attacks six days before.

[Previous lead stories:] Pre-emptive nuclear strike a key option,
Nato told 22 Jan 2008 The west must be ready to resort to a pre-
emptive nuclear attack to try to halt the "imminent" spread of
nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction, according to a
radical manifesto for a new Nato by five of the west's most senior
military officers and strategists. Calling for root-and-branch
reform of Nato and a new pact drawing the US, Nato and the European
Union together in a "grand strategy" to tackle the challenges of an
increasingly brutal world, the former armed forces chiefs from the
US, Britain, Germany, France and the Netherlands insist that a
"first strike" nuclear option remains an "indispensable instrument"
since there is "simply no realistic prospect of a nuclear-free
world". It has been presented to the Pentagon in Washington and to

2008 Japanese benchmarks plunged, completing the worst two-day drop
in 17 years on concern global growth is faltering. The Nikkei
dropped 9.3 percent in the last two sessions and the Topix fell 9.1
percent. That was the biggest two-day decline for both gauges since
1990 and erased 39.2 trillion yen ($369 billion) in value from the
Tokyo Stock Exchange's main board. The loss is more than twice the
