Defector tells how US officials 'sexed up' his fictions to make the case for 2003 invasion
A man whose lies helped to make the case for invading Iraq – starting a nine-year war costing more than 100,000 lives and hundreds of billions of pounds – will come clean in his first British television interview tomorrow.
"Curveball", the Iraqi defector who fabricated claims about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, smiles as he confirms how he made the whole thing up. It was a confidence trick that changed the course of history, with Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi's lies used to justify the Iraq war.
He tries to defend his actions: "My main purpose was to topple the tyrant in Iraq because the longer this dictator remains in power, the more the Iraqi people will suffer from this regime's oppression."

[Newsmax] There is growing talk that if former House Speaker Newt Gingrich drops out of the race and "suspends" his campaign, he may throw his support behind Rick Santorum in an effort to deny Mitt Romney the GOP nomination.
And, for the moment, Gingrich is not yielding to the slew of establishment endorsements for Mitt Romney.
Gingrich told CBS News' "Face the Nation" Sunday that Romney has no lock on the nomination and the math doesn't show him getting the 1,144 delegates easily to clinch the nomination.
A leading Gingrich campaign official also suggested this weekend that their camp may work with Santorum to stop Romney from getting the nomination as the former House Speaker made clear he could back either Santorum or Romney if they were to win the nomination.

TAMPA, March 31, 2012 – In their mad dash to create the long awaited general election narrative, media outlets have pronounced Ron Paul’s campaign dead.
They now speculate about what his supporters may do when he drops out. The Associated Press reports that Romney has over ten times the delegates that Ron Paul has secured. Reuters reports that Paul is far behind in Wisconsin and that his supporters have finally conceded that he can’t win the nomination.
None of this is true. Romney has not secured 568 delegates. Hundreds of those delegates won’t be determined until Republican state conventions, many of which haven’t happened yet.
As I’ve reported before, there is very credible evidence that Ron Paul will emerge from those conventions with the majority of delegates in many states. Texas, New York and California haven’t even held their primaries yet. Those three states alone control over four hundred delegates.
In many states, there is no cause-effect relationship between the popular vote and the delegates awarded to each candidate. Delegates are awarded via a completely separate process that doesn’t utilize the popular vote totals in any way. The purpose of the popular vote is to inform the eventual delegates of the preferences of voters in their states. That’s why many of those states allow Democrats and independents to vote. They want the eventual delegates to know who those voters prefer. That tells them who has the best chance to win in the general election.
Anonymous buyers who are in the health and nutrition field have said that they will match the next 10,000 mailings for Connecticut ($5,500 worth). They were inspired by the grassroots support in CT and want to do everything they can to help.

BREAKING NEWS: Super Brochure Turns Out the Vote: Proof:
We had an interesting town hall type meeting with 3 State legislators who sponsored and recently got a bill out of committee that would requires food manufacturers that have GMO food in their product to state that on their label.
I'm a programmer and artist, and a huge gamer, particularly a fan of classic 8bit and arcade. I recently started developing a Ron Paul video game and could use your help.
First, some info about the game:
The Road to REVOLution is a sidescrolling platformer action/adventure game, reminiscent of console classics like Super Mario Brothers and Sonic the Hedgehog.
You play Ron, and make your way across all 50 states collecting Gold (sound money) and Delegates.
The game has all original artwork, by me.
I built the game in HTML5, and hope to convert it into apps for i* and android platforms.
You'll collect Delegates to ensure your seat as the President, collect Gold Coins to unlock branches of the Federal Reserve where you defeat bosses and progress your quest to end the Federal Reserve.
More info and a video with gameplay footage at my kickstarter page:
Can't afford a ticket for lunch? No problem, it's at Union Square.
That public square holds THOUSANDS! That's FREE.
Pack Union Square for Ron Paul!
We are so looking forward to our County Caucus here in Clallam Co. this morning after meeting up last evening to work over our slate strategies. We are looking forward to giving you all a good report throughout the counties in play today, but we are also not naive concerning the games some would want to play against us.
Please pray that our clarity of mind and influence of heart will prevail for Liberty this day, and help us bring our good doctor as many delegates as we can.
Then do the same with Gingrich...
I'm sure there is footage of at least Newt and Rick being booed by the crowd.
And there is the stadium fiasco of Romney's.
Adam Kokesh did a clip and talked on someone's own mike and all there was was the hotel employees but I cannot remember the candidate or if it is applicable.
No footage to be allowed of candidates on any primary nights...just the crowds they draw when they are out on the campaign trail. And a disclaimer at the end of the ad that either is in text or states that.
Michael Medved starts out by coming out against all the redistribution of wealth. However, it turns out that he is in favor of Medicaid because he thinks Medicaid is not redistribution of wealth! Why you may ask does he think Medicaid is not redistribution of wealth, because it is a service! In Medved's view, when the government provides free services it is not redistributing wealth from the people that are paying for the service to the people who are receiving it for free. It is one whopper after another. This is the natural result of a person trying to evade the truth.
Don't miss the conclusion of Medved's interview and his parting shots after the interview. Medved Part 6.
