This ad (links below), featuring 70 ordinary citizens from central New Jersey, aired in January 2003 a few weeks before the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Comcast, Corp. refused to air it when originally scheduled (on CNN in Washington on the night of Bush's 2003 State of the Union address) on the grounds that it contained "unsubstantiated claims." Bush's speech that night referred to alleged Iraqi attempts to obtain uranium from Africa, along with many other statements about Iraq's WMDs.
