Cheney's spin and Bush's lies

One of the best presentations I've seen chronicling the lies that brought our country to invade Iraq is not yet in the Washington Post. It's an interactive history that you can see over at Mother Jones magazine's website called Lie by Lie: Chronicle of a War Foretold: August 1990 to March 2003. Go check it out.
The first drafts of history are fragmentary. Important revelations arrive late, and out of order. In this timeline, we’ve assembled the history of the Iraq War to create a resource we hope will help resolve open questions of the Bush era. What did our leaders know and when did they know it? And, perhaps just as important, what red flags did we miss, and how could we have missed them? This is the first installment in our Iraq War timeline project.
I don't think Dick Cheney has studied it, though, because he's still spinning the reasons we went to war. Here's another good read with references: Cheney, 9/11 and the Truth about Iraq.

It seems I'm sending readers off to different places today. Take the trip, it should be worth it.
