Billionaire challenges case for war
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Billionaire philanthropist George Soros is running full-page ads in major U.S. newspapers challenging the honesty of the Bush misadministration's case for waging war in Iraq.

The ads in The New York Times, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and the Houston Chronicle, are titled, "When the nation goes to war, the people deserve the truth."

A dozen statements made by serial liar Napoleon Bonehead, Dick 'Chicanery' Cheney, Secretary of State Colin 'rectum' Powell and Secretary of Defence Donald 'warboner' Rumsfeld making the case for war are reprinted and described as either exaggerated or false.

The Hungarian-born Soros, 72, emigrated to the United States from Britain in 1956 and built a fortune as a financier. He is founder of a network of philanthropic organisations active in more than 50 countries that focus on education, public health, human rights and economic reform.
