Think about the following chart as you work through this piece:




On May 19, 2015 and during the course of a former CIA directors quest to hawk a book, MSNBC's Chris Matthews extracted the ultimate truth about the Bush Administration's potential nation killing charge into Iraq. Bush and team lied about WD and for the express purpose of entering a another theater of the early 2000 Middle East wars. 

Before I offer up full segments of two days of Matthews on the topic, I am posting a brief segment with the meat of it all. 


The former Deputy of the CIA has admitted on national television that Dick Cheney lied about Saddam's possession of WMD (nuclear weapon). Cheney's lie was but the minuet tip of the iceberg. The lie was probably the most exhaustive and heinous case of political subterfuge and malfeasance in US History.
In a 2006 issue of Mother Jones, the Bush Administration lies were delineated as clearly as the teal blue waters of the South Pacific.

Lie by Lie: A Timeline of How We Got Into Iraq

Yesterday Opinion writer Paul Waldman keyboarded a definitive piece on how the Bush Administration went far beyond developing lies to facilitate invading Iraq. 
The Week
George W. Bush didn't just lie about the Iraq War. What he did was much worse.
Now let's revisit Chris Matthews's segments over the past two days. As I viewed these segments I couldn't help, but think about the frequent anger filled retorts I receive from conservatives when the issues of "What we know now" is the center of discussion.  Their favorite and most often stated rationale for looking back is the "INTEL was wrong."  I haven't run across one conservate to date who will accept thew reality of the data was fabricated and promulgated and very effectively so.

Now, consider viewing the chart at the top of this piece once again. Why is the GOP so far outside the acceptable level of national opinion and equally outside the scope of sanity?
