Hmmmmm.... Tonkin Gulf?
That'd be on the list for sure.

But, you could make the argument that he thought he was telling the truth.

In Bill's case...not so much.

Plus, Bill did it with such style, shaking his "finger of sincerity" at the camera so we'd know how truthful he was.

Yeah, we found out later how truthful he was, all right...

Because of the awesome way he looked right into the camera and shook his "finger of sincerity" at us, just so we'd know how truthful he was.

It wasn't until later that we found out how "truthful" he REALLY was.
