    Wouldn't be the first time a President lied and went to great lengths to make his lie seem credible. Paging LBJ!

    Now we cannot know if this charge is true.

    All we can know is that the CIA is in the business of misinforming when it needs to.

    As to whether the White House trusted the CIA enough to work with them on this?

    Maybe, but frankly I'd be surprised.

    Yup anyone now days can write anything they want about Bush and it will sell, Facts? Who needs those? Proof? Why the absence of proof is all we need to know it is true.

    No need to make up stuff about Bush.

    The truth is a nightmare.

    Can't we just polygraph all these guys?

    I think executive privilege has been grossly overused by the white house time and time again. While I'm not sure of the contents of the book Suskind's book, It certainly doesn't seem like that much of a strech.

    If it turns out to be true a war crimes tribunal should be set up.

    Sure just as soon as we polygraph all the Clinton aides and Clinton for supposed crimes while he was President.
