Well DUH!

Everyone else has known this for at least the last two months.
White House Says Iraq Uranium Claim Forged

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush's claim in his State of the Union address in January that Iraq tried to buy uranium from the African nation of Niger was based on forged information, the White House National Security Council said on Tuesday.

"At the time, the national intelligence estimate on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction referred to attempts by Iraq to acquire uranium from several countries in Africa," said Michael Anton, a spokesman for the security council.

"We now know that documents alleging a transaction between Iraq and Niger had been forged," Anton said.
The CIA and military intelligence services (and therefore, most likely, the White House and State Department) have known it was a forgery since well before the State of the Union address.

Bush used this known-bogus information to justify raining death and destruction on an entire sovereign country. Don't just complain about it (though that, in itself, is useful) - send him a message that all politicians understand - contribute to the loyal opposition and then, in 2004, vote for anyone but him!
