Did Bush Lie?

I was asked this repeatedly and I chose intentionally misleading as my language of choice on the matter, but lying by omission is better given this article.

"On at least four earlier occasions, beginning in the spring of 2002, according to the same records and sources, the president was informed during his morning intelligence briefing that U.S. intelligence agencies believed it was unlikely that Saddam was an imminent threat to the United States."

I think ignoring contrary evidence and asserting less than credible ones that support a predetermined position to invade Iraq is indeed a lie. Wanting to believe the worst with evidence things aren't that dire and people dying by the thousands as a result is well, dubious leadership to say the least and criminal negligence at the worst.
