Lies of the Year

Only one day apart, Karl Rove released his new book that said, "Did George bush lie to us into war? Absolutely not!" (on 3/6/10). Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, called the terrorist attack of 9/11 as a "Big Lie" intended to paved the way for invasion into a sovereign country (on 3/7/10). 

 On Karl Rove;

Karl Rove, often described as President George W. Bush's brain, defended the former president in a new book against claims that he lied to the American public in order to invade Iraq in 2003.

"[D]id Bush lie us into war? Absolutely not," Rove wrote in his 516-page book, "Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight."

The book highlights Rove's life and career and his time working for Bush.

Rove, a long-time political advisor who joined Bush in the White House after the 2000 campaign, said the U.S. wouldn't have gone to war with Iraq if the administration knew that weapons of mass destruction wouldn't be found.

"Would the Iraq War have occurred without WMD? I doubt it," he wrote. "Congress was very unlikely to have supported the use-of-force resolution without the threat of WMD. The Bush administration itself would probably have sought other ways to constrain Saddam, bring about regime change, and deal with Iraq's horrendous human rights violations." Link

On Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:

Two days before his official trip to Afghanistan, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, a "big lie" intended to pave the way for the invasion of a war-torn nation, according to Iranian state media.

Ahmadinejad, known for his harsh rhetoric toward the West and Israel, said the attack on U.S. soil was a "scenario and a sophisticated intelligence measure," Iran's state-run Press TV reported Saturday.

The assault was a "big lie intended to serve as a pretext for fighting terrorism and setting the grounds for sending troops to Afghanistan," Press TV reported Ahmadinejad as saying.

It's not the first time Ahmadinejad has denied a historical tragedy. In the past, he has denied the existence of the Holocaust, which claimed the lives of some 6 million Jews during World War II, and suggested Israel should be "wiped off the map." Link

Don't you love the irony.
Two dictators. Two men of fundamentalism. Two just out of their freaking mind.
Both evil yet powerful - one as the current regime president of Iran, the other, at the time of  Bush's regime just knew what buttons to push to sell to the American people into war.

The illusions they spell out to convince you of their ideology.
The talking shit that comes out of their mouths.

The bottom line to both their rhetorics - there is no right or wrong and factual truth does not apply. 
It is what they perceive is what is their truth.

Fascists!
