I was not surprised to see the “Bush lied, people died” meme pop up on my social media feed again a couple weeks ago, but I was surprised to see a conservative former Bush voter (and Trump supporter) promoting it. So the question should be examined again: Did George W. Bush “lie” about weapons of mass destruction in order to pull this nation into war with Iraq? The simple answer is “no, he did not.”
If he “lied” then there has to be a motive for those lies. Was it to enrich Halliburton or other defense contractors? Was it to get revenge for the attempted assassination of his father? Why would Bush plunge us into war if he knows that the claims he was making about the war were not correct?
