Lying to the Public about the Costs of War

President George Dub-Yuh Bush fired his top economic advisor, Lawrence Lindsay, after Lindsay told him that the cost of his War on Terra (as Dub-Yuh pronounced it) would likely be in the $100 billion range.  The Bush administration then revised its estimate of the costs of the War on Terra to be more like $50-60 billion.  News reports at the time said that Dick Cheney himself, uber neocon warmonger extraordinaire, personally fired Lindsay.

Now along comes the latest estimate of the cost of the War on Terra which puts it at $5.9 trillion.
