Bush's latest lie was caught on video: It's available from the White House web site: Click on the "Play Video" underneath "President Reaffirms Strong Position on Liberia."

The quote is, in response to a question about Iraq: "We gave him a chance to allow the inspectors in, and he wouldn't let them in."

Pitiful Item Number One: UN General Secretary Kofi Annan was sitting right next to Bush when he said it.

Pitiful Item Number Two: One of Bush's aides had at least twice tried to stop the questions, but Bush insisted on allowing that one last question.

Pitiful Item Number Three: While the Washington Post did an excellent job of ripping this and other lies (from the same video) to shreds, none of the other major media seem to have picked up on it.
