The following Liberal Urban Legends persist no matter how thoroughly they are debunked. The president misled the country in order to justify the Iraq war; his administration pressured intelligence agencies to bias their judgments; Saddam Hussein turned out to be no threat since he didn't possess weapons of mass destruction; and helping democracy take root in the Middle East was a postwar rationalization.
Time and time again, researchers and writers have proven each of these Liberal alegations against the President are false. Many of the Liberals -- Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, even Nancy Pelosi -- who are spouting the above charges against President Bush were saying the opposite under President Clinton, and were even making the same charges against Saddam as the President just prior to the start of war.
All this evidence of Liberal perfidy has been aired repeatedly, and just as repeatedly ignored. Now there is an excellent article, Revisionist History - Antiwar myths about Iraq, debunked. By Peter Wehner, in the 23 May 2006 Opinion Journal from the Wall Street Journal Editorial Page. It too will be ignored by many, but let us not aid the willfully ignorant. We owe a debt to truth to try to plant it and to help it grow in the most barren of soils, the editorial rooms of the Main Stream Media.
