White House Caught Doctoring "Mission Accomplished" Video

A sharp eyed observer catches the WHite House croping out "Mission Accomplished"

Apparently the Bush administration has taken the Winston Churchill quote "History is written by the victors" into the video age. The official White House website is now sporting a very different version of President Bush's "Mission Accomplished" speech. In this exclusive video, Inside Minnesota Politics' Mike McIntee shows how the "Mission Accomplished" banner on the USS Abraham Lincoln has apparently been crudely cropped out of the video.

I hate to break it to you (actually, I don't), but this is easily debunked right here:

Don't be so quick to fall for something like this... please, do yourself a favor and watch both videos...

I fell for it. Within seconds someone pointed out the competing video. Truth prevailed. Pretty simple, eh?

You "don't" hate to break it to him? Would I be write in concluding you added the parenthetical because you like to put the smackdown on "Bush bashers" (Bush critics)? If so, why not follow your own advice about not being too quick to fall for something?

I did NOT fall for Niger yellowcake, Iraqi drones capable of spraying bio agents, mobile bio lab trailers, invasion-will-pay-for-itself, we-don't-torture, there-are-no-secret-prisons, mission accomplished, and a lot of other bunk.

How about you?

That's what happens when you get caught lying so many times -- you lose your credibility -- the Medicaid Drug data fabrication, WMD, Niger yellowcake, Iraqi drones, greeted as liberators, the invasion-will-pay-for-itself, we-don't-torture, there-are-no-secret-prisons, mission accomplished, etc.

The moral is that once you are branded as a liar, EVERYTHIGN you say and do becomes suspect -- and President Bush II has made Nixon look like a boy scout . . .
