The Iraq Pitch and the Patriot Act

William Rasberry doesn't want us to be blinded by uraniumgate:

The flap over how the falsehood about uranium purchases from Niger made it into the president's State of the Union message should not obscure what for me is the most troubling fact: Key members of the Bush administration, convinced in their hearts that America needed to destroy Saddam Hussein, thought it reasonable to exaggerate the threat and deliberately stretch the facts in order to sell the American people on that necessity.
Read his column to see why he thinks this is a pattern of behaviour.
