"... Below is a transcript of President George W. Bush.s address to the nation on Monday,
March 17, announcing his readiness to order a U.S. invasion of Iraq followed by an analysis highlighting
some of the lies and misleading statements in the speech. Such an overview is necessary since the
Democratic Party leadership in Congress, which has pledged to support the president in the event of war,
declined to take their traditional opportunity to offer a formal response. The Green Party, which opposes
the war, was not given the opportunity by the networks to respond."
