POLL: Your Opinion

WASHINGTON, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroder says former U.S. President George W. Bush "is not telling the truth" in his newly published memoir.

In "Decision Points", Bush says Schroder broke a promise to support the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq. Schroder told ABC News he did no such thing, and said he told Bush he would support the invasion if there was proof Iraq had given "protection and support to al-Qaida fighters."

"This connection, however, as it became clear during 2002, was false and constructed", Schroder said.

Germany did support the United States in Afghanistan.

Bush suggests Schroder acted differently in Iraq out of political calculation because he was facing an election. He said Schroder's switch on Iraq made their future relationship difficult because he no longer trusted the German leader.

Schroder's memoir, "Decisions: A Life in Politics", was published in 2006, a year after he was defeated by Angela Merkel. He was none too complimentary about Bush, describing him as having "almost Biblical semantics."

"The problem begins when the impression is created that political decisions are a result of this conversation with God", Schroder said.

Now, the ex-chancellor accuses the president of breaking at least one of the Ten Commandments: "The president is not telling the truth."
