Downing Street Denial

In Everyone has one, Opinion by Erich Cella

Lying has never been as rampant in the White House as it has been in recent years, as President Bush has taken this devious art to a whole new level. Unfortunately the national news media has purposely neglected to challenge these blatant fabrications, even as the shocking contents of a memo are revealed to the public.

Who could blame the public though, especially if you get your news solely from network or cable news?

Coverage of the memo has been lethargic to nonexistent and it is just downright shameful that hard working Americans, who get their news from television, are kept in the dark about damaging evidence against the President.

The memo I am referring to includes the minutes of the British Prime Minster’s meeting back on July 23, 2002 in London that included the Britain Defense Secretary and other British intelligence officials. This meeting obviously took place long before the illegal invasion of Iraq had taken place and this is one of the main reasons why it‘s such a controversial issue.

These minutes contain compelling evidence that President Bush and his crooked administration, fixed the intelligence in order to build a case to invade Iraq. Even though Bush stated to the American public that war was a last resort, Bush already made up his mind that he was going to launch a war against a country that had no connections to the attack on September 11 and no connections to the Al Qaeda network.

This eye opening evidence is what so many skeptics to the war in Iraq have been thirsting for, and finally we have our “smoking gun” that will expose and bring down the Bush administration.

Well, that’s if the news media actually runs a story or reports the findings of this disgusting scandal. This document was printed in The Times of London on Sunday, the 1st of May, 2005, which was more than a month ago, but the news media has been too obsessed with the Michael Jackson trial to run a story on it.

It’s also important that you do not just blindly believe everything I am telling you but to see with your own eyes. If you do a search and go to you will be able to decipher for yourself whether or not the Bush administration lied to get us into war.

You may have been told by many republican pundits and apologists in the press about how the memo has been discredited or exposed for its falsehoods, but nothing could be further from the truth. Not only has no one questioned the authenticity of the document or the accuracy of the contents but there has been no evidence to dispute the memo.

There is also this myth circulating through the grapevine that there was a commission that shot down the accusations compiled on these documents but the only dilemma with this theory is that it’s a flat out lie that is a convenient tool that is used to hoodwink the unsuspecting minds of the willfully ignorant citizen that is too lazy or brainwashed to verify the truthfulness of the news media or their own government.

Questioning the motives of the government is an essential component of our eroding democracy and doing your homework to make sure they’re keeping up their end of the bargain in this free society is an obligation that we have, in order to preserve what we hold dear.

This memo may be proof of Bush’s lie, but to me it’s as if this is too late, especially since we have lost 1,700 American troops and an uncanny amount of Iraqi civilians in this debacle. We do have a chance though, to save lives now and in the future, so this memo may be able to serve that purpose and bring those brave men and women home.

540,000 Americans and over 120 congressman and women have signed a letter written by congressman John Conyers, and has been delivered to the president, but is still determined to get as many signatures as possible to show how many people believe in the truthfulness of the documents.

With all this support

and from Congress and the public, Bush may find himself backed into a corner in which he will have address all these accusations but we all know that denial will be the appropriate response from a man who has never been honest a day in his life and grew up in a corrupt family that has never been challenged or stood up to. We have to change this disturbing precedent now or the American public will be sucker punched one last time since we may never recover from the destructive blow.
