Dr Hosni al-Jawshaie says in his article that three American congressmen had said in a statement on May 25 that information offered by the American administration to the UN Security Council and both the American congress and the senate on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction was a lie. After all that happened and those representatives' discovery of the truth about the lie that was sold to them by their president, what are they going to do? Many observers expect this issue would continue in its reactions and may end up in a sounding scandal no less than previous scandals of former American presidents as Clinton and Nixon. But Bush's lie has cost the American treasury more than 2 billion dollars and caused the death of innocent people. It has been found that there are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. After the American people have discovered the lie of their president, when would he be brought to trial?
