What so many knew all along

The President and the Executive Branch made several hundred false statements with regard to Iraq in the 2 years prior to the second Iraq War, according to research gathered by 2 nonprofit journalism organizations.

What's going to happen here, you might ask? People are going to read the article, they're going to see the research, and then they're going to decide whether they want to believe the results based not on the research done or on the methods of research or any empirical reasons. Instead, they're going to decide whether or not to believe the conclusions based on whether they like or dislike President Bush. Which is unfortunate, because if the President did make misstatements to lead this country into war, then that is serious and demands an objective inquiry.
