The Bush Doctrine - Thou Shalt Lie Without Shame:
Remember when Bush promised the Iraq people that the United States would help set up a representative government, "and then our military forces will leave"?
By "leave" he apparently meant establish four permanent military bases.
Update: the official denial is in, also shameless: Do I prefer asking my own question and then answering it? Gosh, yes! Can I make you look foolish by implying it's your question? Absolutely!
