The lies just keep on coming

With glee I am observing the Bushies’ twisting and turning to get UN support for their occupation in order to induce various nations to send troops and money to bail them out of the debacle they’ve created. The French and Germans are enjoying it too, rejecting out of hand the draft resolution that Colin Powell submitted to the Security Council.

But even in humiliation, the Administration lies: Wolfowitz told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the US had been seeking such a resolution all the while; and that it was only the circumstances, and the other nations’ views, that had changed because of the bombing of the UN offices in Baghdad. Amazing gall.
