He can claim he was truthful, but the evidence feels like he was misleading us.’” Commentary Opinion: “In his three speeches, Bush made no mention of the Iraqis who were permanently defaced. Bush cannot mention them because the invasion had no grounds. Neither weapons of mass destruction nor proof of an imminent threat was found.
