We say that we are a country of laws, and yet, we allowed an Administration to come into power that took us into STARTING a war that was based on lies. The Administration lied to the people for the express reason of getting popular support for an unnecessary and therefore illegal war. They lied to the Congress to misrepresent the necessity of going to war in Iraq. The result of these lies was that they were allowed to steal billions in unaccounted funds from the treasury as well as creating an unaffordable military budget. But worse, much worse, these lies led to the deaths of thousands of brave Americans, tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis and a distrust of the USA by our neighbors around the world.
