Liar, liar, Karl Rove's pants on fire

-- Karl Rove, yesterday on Meet the Press: "[T]he suggestion that somehow or another the administration had as its policy, 'We're going to go in to Iraq and take their resource and pay for the war,' is not accurate."

-- Paul Wolfowitz, shortly after the invasion of Iraq: "The oil revenue of that country could bring between 50 and 100 billion dollars over the course of the next two or three years. We're dealing with a country that could really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon."

The historical record sucks, eh, Turd Blossom?

(Rove could explain himself by countering that what Wolfowitz and others said at the time never amounted to "policy," but I think it's pretty clear that he was lying.)

  • Rove can always justify anything and the Neocons can disassociate themselves with that idea as much as they like, but it was all over the news and on everyone's mind and the few who objected and said it wasn't possible were called traitors and for some reason related to illiteracy: Liberals.
