Post Post subject: WMD Intelligence: lies and manipulation not 'mistakes'. Reply with quote

Letter posted today to various national media outlets including the 'pops'(Mirror,Radio 5,Sky News):


Sir,
And still most of the British media refuses to use the words 'lies' and 'manipulation' to describe Blair's WMD claims and the case for war against Iraq.
Instead, even at this late stage, we are, unbelievably, still being subjected to endless disingenuous and deceptive talk about 'unreliable' intelligence and intelligence 'mistakes'.
Now the real un-spun question that needs to be urgently and honestly addressed in order just to begin restoring the British public's faith in our media-manipulated, discredited mock-democracy is:
Why did the opposition and so much of our media so readily conspire together to let the government get away with the deceit and why are they still, for the most part, attempting to defend or spare Blair & Co. at a time when even most Americans - and certainly just about every US Democrat - now see the Bush-Blair lies for what they were - namely, deliberate means-to-an-end lies and not 'mistakes' or even 'exaggeration'.

And isn't it amazing that these very same Americans - and for that matter most of the rest of the planet - have somehow been able to reach their unsurprising and inevitable conclusions without the assistance of a certain Peer of the British Realm - Lord Hutton?
