2. Those 16 words were based on an assessment shared by British intelligence, not on a forgery. British intelligence stood by their assessment long after that speech and the Brit's Butler Report concluded that Bush's statement was "well founded".
Keep believing those lies, patty.

As for number two, how convenient they would believe the British instead of our own CIA. I wonder why. Oh, yea, the CIA told them it was untrue, but Bush wanted a war, so went with the Lie, knowing rubes like you would believe some stench about the British.

There are 8 other lies in that article as well.

Patty, defending the lies of Bush well after he left office.

Here, don't be lazy... unskew these lies for us as well.

LIE #3: "We believe [Saddam] has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons." -- Vice President Cheney on March 16, 2003 on "Meet the Press."

FACT: There was and is absolutely zero basis for this statement. CIA reports up through 2002 showed no evidence of an Iraqi nuclear weapons program.

LIE #7: "We have seen intelligence over many months that they have chemical and biological weapons, and that they have dispersed them and that they're weaponized and that, in one case at least, the command and control arrangements have been established." -- President Bush, Feb. 8, 2003, in a national radio address.

FACT: Despite a massive nationwide search by U.S. and British forces, there are no signs, traces or examples of chemical weapons being deployed in the field, or anywhere else during the war.

LIE #9: "We know where [Iraq's WMD] are. They're in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south, and north somewhat." -- Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, March 30, 2003, in statements to the press.

FACT: Needless to say, no such weapons were found, not to the east, west, south or north, somewhat or otherwise.
