Lies, damn lies and "imminent threat" lies...

Andrew Sullivan has been collecting examples of the proliferating "imminent threat" lie. He's accumulating quite a heap.

MORE 'IMMINENT' LIES: The Associated Press will not stop lying about the case for war against Saddam. Here's a piece about the vice president's speech today. Money quote:
Yet Cheney offered no new evidence that Saddam posed an imminent threat as the administration claimed before the war.
What galls me is thinking of these prating hypocrites puffing themselves up and saying that the are "shocked and disappointed" that the Bush Administration should be so dishonest! And some of them are so twisted that telling an obvious lie about Bush is not a lie to them at all--rather a "higher form of truth." "We are good, Republicans are bad, and so we are actually revealing a truth that we could demonstate, if only the Republicans weren't so deceptious."

"Those Bushies have developed a diabolical tactic--they say what they are going to do, and then they do it! The moron voters are fooled, but we of the intellectual elite are not. And to foil this monstrous trickery, we have invented a powerful new tactic: The TruthLie.."
