More Bush lies exposed by the WSJ

The ever invaluable Wall Street Journal has another story today exposing the Bush administrations "selective use of intelligence" during the run-up to the invasion of Iraq.
This time it is the Bush team's claim that Iraq had developed drones - unmanned aircraft - capable of carrying chemical and biological weapons that is being called into question.

"The Air Force, which has expertise in designing such unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, was never convinced Baghdad had developed drones capable of effectively distributing chemical and biological weapons as the White House claimed.
"But the Air Force dissent, attached to a classified report last October on the Iraqi threat, was kept secret even as the president publicly made the opposite case last fall prior to Congress voting on the war resolution."

Just more confirmation of the Bush administration's pattern of covering up, hiding or ignoring evidence when it doesn't match up with their predetermined notions. That is the danger that is inherent in a president who is driven by ideology rather than reason.
