The Center For Public Integrity and the Fund for Independence in Journalism has verified that on 532 occasions Bush and his administration officials have said that Iraq had or was making weapons of mass destruction, and was linked to Al-Qaida.
In a two year period they had made over 935 false statements. Bush made 231 false statements about weapons of mass destruction and 28 false statements about the Al-Qaida link to Iraq.
The study concluded that we went to war under false pretenses.
Staff members Charles Lewis and Mark Reading-Smith of the Fund for Independence in Journalism said "It is now beyond dispute that Iraq did not possess any weapons of mass destruction or have meaningful ties to al-Qaida,"
