ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the question of to what extent the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush manipulated the public leading up to the Iraq war. Special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald claimed I. Lewis Libby's indictment was not about the war, but the author claims it shows that Libby and Vice President Dick Cheney interfered with the public's understanding of intelligence. Cheney made many assertions before the war, including the idea that Saddam Hussein conspired with Osama bin Laden to stage the Sept. 11 attacks and that Hussein had nuclear weapons, and speculation suggests he knew these claims were untrue when he made them.
