US Open – Day 3

Olympic club is still playing extremely tough as day three of the U.S. Open round up yesterday. Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell are tied at one under par. Tiger Woods struggled all day and ended up five strokes off the lead. What about amateur Bo Hossler? He is playing some truly great golf at the age of 17!! Sunday is going to be compelling.

Quail Hollow

Tiger is out. Phil is way back. Webb Simpson leads. Rory and Rickie Fowler have made bold moves and are in shouting distance of the lead. Should be a great finish tomorrow at Quail Hollow.

Study finds Bush administration lied in lead up to war

bush flight suit

This one was/is a no brainer. Anyone who has kinda been following the Bush Administration has to know this one. There have been 15 – 20 very good books written on the numerous lies that the Bush Administration used to sell the War. One of the best and most comprehensive books was Frank Rich’s The Greatest Story ever Sold. Well, there is now a formal study which has come to the same conclusion.

The study was a joint project from the Center For Public Integrity and Fund For Independence in Journalism.

Keith Olbermann discusses this study with Rachael Maddow of Air America Radio.


From AP:

A study by two nonprofit journalism organizations found that President Bush and top administration officials issued hundreds of false statements about the national security threat from Iraq in the two years following the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The study concluded that the statements “were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses.” (more…)

Update:  Think Progress has the Bush Administration’s response to this study.   It just isn’t worth commenting on according to Dana Perino.  Really?
