Lie by Lie: Chronicle of a War Foretold: August 1990 to March 2003


`The first drafts of history are fragmentary. Important revelations arrive late, and out of order. In this timeline, we’ve assembled the history of the Iraq War to create a resource we hope will help resolve open questions of the Bush era. What did our leaders know and when did they know it? And, perhaps just as important, what red flags did we miss, and how could we have missed them? This is the first installment in our Iraq War timeline project.’ On the MotherJones web site

An extract from the timeline: 

`Officals in the Bush Administration come together to prepare for Secretary of State Powell’s February 5 2003 speech to the U.N, in which Powell will put all credible US evidence on the table and make the case for war to the international community. Powell reads an eary draft and throws several pages in the air and exclaims `I’m not reading this. This is bullshit.’
