Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Bush Knew Saddam Uranium Docs Were Forgeries Before State Of Union Speech

Eleven days before President Bush's January 28, 2003, State of the Union address in which he said that the US learned from British intelligence that Iraq had attempted to acquire uranium from Africa - an explosive claim that helped pave the way to war - the State Department told the CIA that the intelligence the uranium claims were based upon were forgeries, according to a newly declassified State Department memo.

“Moreover, the memo says that the State Department's doubts about the veracity of the uranium claims may have been expressed to the intelligence community even earlier.”

Bush Administration State Department official Carl Ford said in a previous interview that he has no doubt the State Department's reservations about the Niger intelligence made its way to President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

One high-ranking State Department official said that when the department's analysts briefed Colin Powell about the Niger forgeries Powell met with then-Director of the CIA George Tenet and shared that information with him. Tenet then told Vice President Dick Cheney and then-National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice and her former deputy, Stephen Hadley (currently the National Security Adviser), that the uranium claims were "dubious," according to current and former State Department and CIA officials who have direct knowledge of what Tenet discussed with the White House at the time.

The fact that Saddam was not buying Uranium from Niger was the truth that the Bush Administration revealed the identity of a CIA agent over because her husband had the balls to tell our nation the truth.

Remember that it only took the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) one hour to determine that the documents were forgeries because the Niger officials who allegedly signed them were not the officials in power at the time they allegedly signed them. The date of the signature was right there on the forged documents. A simple Google search confirmed that the signers were not in office when the documents were signed. The Bush Administration claimed at the time that they had no idea that they were forgeries.

So, we now have documented proof that the Bush Administration knew the documents saying Saddam was trying to buy Uranium from Niger were forgeries even before Bush told the people of the United States that lie in the State of the Union Speech in January 2003 in the lead up to the Iraq War.

Will the Corporate Mainstream Media inform the American people about this? I seriously doubt it. So it’s up to the bloggers to be the only Free Press in the US.

This isn't a suprise. I'm sure Bush & Co., didn't think the documents were real. Everything points to the admin and their neo-con buddies pushing for the invasion of Iraq long before they started hinting about it in public.
