The 380,000-plus-word database presented here allows, for the first time, the Iraq-related public pronouncements of top Bush administration officials to be tracked on a day-by-day basis against their private assessments and the actual “ground truth” as it is now known.

Searches may also be limited by person or subject, or both, by using the appropriate selections from the pull-down menus.
