Deception: God Made Me Do It

Aldan, Carly
August 2006
Lesbian News;Aug2006, Vol. 32 Issue 1, p16
The author reflects on the deceptions defended by U.S. President George W. Bush, regarding the Iraqi invasion, Saddam Hussein and finding weapons of mass destruction (WMD). She asserts that perhaps Bush did not really start out to deceive anyone and that all he wanted to do was to find enough evidence against Saddam to support his decision to invade Iraq. It just so happened that not enough evidence was found and Bush did not wait for the United Nations to finish their search for WMD.
