Bush In Iraq Today!

Here's his speech:
Blah, blah blah, today is a new day. Blah, turned the corner for freedom. Blah a new start toward an independent government. Blah, blah, blah, freedom. Blah a historical turning point in the war against terrorism blah freedom. Blah, milestone blah, blah Iraq’s recovery blah freedom. Freedom isn't free. Blah, blah...
Okay I confess I didn’t actually see Bush, but I bet I got it really close to what the idiot said..er..lied about. Need a refresher on the real speech..er..lies Bu$h has told about Iraq:

Bush’s Claim
"Our intelligence officials estimate that Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent.”
State of the Union Address – 1/28/2003
Iraq has 500 tons of chemical weapons:
- Sarin gas
- Mustard gas
- VX Nerve agent
Not True
Zero Chemical Weapons FoundNot a drop of any chemical weapons has been found anywhere in Iraq

Bush’s Claim“U.S. intelligence indicates that Saddam Hussein had upwards of 30,000 munitions capable of delivering chemical agents.”
State of the Union Address – 1/28/2003
Iraq has 30,000 weapons capable of dumping chemical weapons on people
Not True
Zero Munitions FoundNot a single chemical weapon’s munition has been found anywhere in Iraq


Bush’s Claim“We have also discovered through intelligence that Iraq has a growing fleet of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles that could be used to disperse chemical or biological weapons across broad areas."
State of the Union Address – 1/28/2003
Iraq has a growing fleet of planes capable of dispersing chemical weapons almost anywhere in the world
Not True
Zero Aerial Vehicles FoundNot a single aerial vehicle capable of dispersing chemical or biological weapons, has been found anywhere in Iraq

Bush’s Claim"Evidence from intelligence sources, secret communications and statements by people now in custody reveal that Saddam Hussein aids and protects terrorists, including members of Al Qaida."
State of the Union Address – 1/28/2003
Iraq aids and protects terrorists, including members of Al Qaeda
And implied that Iraq was somehow behind 9/11
Not True
Zero Al Qaeda Connection
To date, not a shred of evidence connecting Hussein with Al Qaida or any other known terrorist organizations have been revealed. (besides certain Palestinian groups who represent no direct threat to the US)

Bush’s Claim"Our intelligence sources tell us that he (Saddam) has attempted to purchase high-strength aluminum tubes suitable for nuclear weapons production."
State of the Union Address – 1/28/2003

Bush’s Claim"Satellite photographs reveal that Iraq is rebuilding facilities at [past nuclear] sites."
Bush speech to the nation – 10/7/2002

Bush’s Claim"The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."
