Officials Lied, People Died

Michael Ledeen reports Saddam Hussein wasn't the only leader whose people shielded him from the truth. (Curtsy: Powerline.)

  • the truth had been suppressed for two decades.
    Why? Because those who controlled the information didn’t want the top policy maker—Ronald Reagan—to know it, since they “knew” he would not let it pass, and they didn’t want trouble with Iran.
  • Why? Because they did not want trouble with Iran, and they “knew” that if President Bush had that information, he would not let it pass.

Etc., etc.
