Bush Misused Iraq Intelligence: Senate Report

President George W. Bush and his top policymakers misstated Saddam Hussein's links to terrorism and ignored doubts among intelligence agencies about Iraq's arms programs as they made a case for war, the Senate intelligence committee reported on Thursday.

The report shows an administration that "led the nation to war on false premises," said the committee's Democratic Chairman, Sen. John Rockefeller of West Virginia. Several Republicans on the committee protested its findings as a "partisan exercise."

It's really very simple. They Lied.
Nothing that was claimed was based on a truthful account of the intelligence.

On the strength of LIES, the top people in the White House and Pentagon launched an unnecessary War against Iraq. In doing so, they have caused the deaths of many thousands of people. Such actions constitute a War Crime- according to International and US Law. Those who were responsible must be arrested and made to stand trial.
