Honesty is the best policy - when there is money in it.
The coalition did not act in Iraq because we had discovered dramatic new evidence of Iraq’s pursuit of weapons of mass murder,” Rumsfeld said. “We acted because we saw the existing evidence in a new light through the prism of our experience on Sept. 11.” Rumsfeld’s statement echoed an earlier assertion from his deputy, Paul Wolfowitz, who said the WMD issue was chosen “for convenience” so the administration could lay out a case against Iraq at the United Nations.
Tony Blair’s former foreign secretary, Robin Cook, who has characterized the Iraq war as a Bush family vendetta: “This was a war made in Washington, pushed by a handful of neoconservatives and pursued for reasons of U.S. foreign strategy and domestic politics,” Cook wrote in the London daily The Independent on Friday. Cook’s broadside coincided with new statements from anonymous British Cabinet members saying they now had very little expectation that any banned weapons would ever be found in Iraq.
So how so far out of touch with the reality that is the American conciousness am I?
How pissed off should great mass of U.S. Citizens be?
71 military personell have died since Bush landed on a carrier at tax payers expense and declared an end to the hostilities in Iraq. No weapons of mass destruction have ever been found - let alone the large stocks of "ready to be deployed WMD" that were cited as a reason to invade right away.
It's been admitted by the administration itself that they had the nucelear threat wrong - that there was no nuke threat at all.
So, why did we invade? Why did over 150 U.S. military personel lose thier lives so far?
Because of Osama bin Laden and 9/11?
So why does no one ever mention that guy any more? Weren't we supposed to get him?
What about Saddam? Where's that guy?
Whatever... you've all stopped reading by now anyway.
