Did John Kerry Lie?

Some folks (especially in the MSM) are under the impression that "Bush lied us into War". There are multiple layers of misleading assumptions built into that statement. Let's assume for the moment that if person X said the same as GWB at the same time then he would be lying too. Then go read this:

HT: Glenn Reynolds

Yeah, I guess Kerry lied and people died!

Seriously though, it is an increasingly ridiculous assertion to believe that GWB some how convinced those in Congress, the UN, the NYT, the WaPo, the Clinton Administration (in 1998!) by some kind of retroactively dated argument that we should go to war. The start of the second Iraq war was a widely supported operation at the time.
