    Smarter than the Democrats in Congress, Lebanon Shiite cleric calls for Bush trial over Iraq


    "Bush and seven of his administration's top officials methodically propagated erroneous information," it said, with the pace of lies picking up in August 2002 ahead of US congressional consideration of a war resolution.

    The US president was found to have made the highest number of false statements, referring a total of 260 times to Iraq's supposed weapons of mass destruction and alleged Al-Qaeda links to the Baghdad regime, the report said.

    Charges that the late Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein had stockpiled an arsenal of weapons of mass destruction proved to be untrue after the invasion, when no such weapons were found.

    Fadlallah warned against what he called Bush's "next big lie," and said that "political falsehoods have become the salt of US policies."
