Searchable Database of Administration Statements on Iraq

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on November 16, 2005

A timely reminder on a useful resource: see Iraq on the Record.

  • “Prepared at the direction of Rep. Henry A. Waxman, Iraq on the Record is a searchable collection of 237 specific misleading statements made by Bush Administration officials about the threat posed by Iraq. It contains statements that were misleading based on what was known to the Administration at the time the statements were made. It does not include statements that appear mistaken only in hindsight. If a statement was an accurate reflection of U.S. intelligence at the time it was made, it was excluded even if it now appears erroneous.”
