Completely ignoring the point that Al Gore wasn't a public official at the time, let's not forget that congress was lied to just as much as the rest of the public.

The Factcheck link http://archive.is/vAWQa completely disproves your claim. Are they lying too?

That fact check shows that he didn't lie during the State of the Union address, not that the pretense for the war wasn't a lie. Certainly, it says nothing about the fact we went to war with Iraq for an attack they had nothing to do with.

And Condoleeze Rice is not a "public official" now, either
