ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the publication of the study titled "The War Card," by the Center for Public Integrity, which documents the alleged erroneous claims of U.S. President George W. Bush which led to the Iraq War. According to the study, justifications offered for the preventive war were related to claims that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and ties to al-Qaeda. A list of U.S. officials who allegedly told lies over the period September 2001 and September 2003 is provided. The role of mainstream media in promotion of the war is explored.
